Alternate Kristie Moore, 30, is 5½ months pregnant, making her just the 3rd athlete known to be with child during Olympic competition.
Ninety years ago, Swedish figure skater Magda Julin won a gold medal at the Antwerp Games while in her 1st trimester and Germany's Diana Sartor took 4th in the skeleton in 2006....
[I]t's unlikely Moore will see any Olympic action. During competition her role as an alternate is much like a backup quarterback in football....
Team Canada is the gold-medal favorite.... Even if Moore doesn't play, she will receive any medal Canada wins.
"Well, six, if you really want to get technical with it." Ew. Pro-aborts couldn't let that one go. Wrote MollzieD at Feministing.com:
Thank you, Chris Chase at Yahoo! Sports for perpetuating the myth that fetuses are people and that they are capable of Olympic curling.
Actually, Mollzie, it would only be an ignorant person of Olympic proportions who would call it a "myth" that "fetuses are people."
Mollzie needs to retake 8th grade biology. Or maybe she hasn't taken it yet.
