Olympic gold medalist, Sydney Leroux Dwyer, has just started her pre-season soccer training at 5.5 months pregnant! This super mom is a forward for Orlando Pride in the National Women's Soccer League.
Not everyone liked the idea of her playing soccer while pregnant and went after her on twitter. This is what Sydney Leroux Dwyer had to say:
I just do non contact stuff. Ball work. Getting touches in. I don’t put myself in situations where the ball can ricochet or I can get hit. No high intensity running and I listen to my OB (who knows more than people on twitter telling me what I shouldn’t be doing with MY body).
We support strong women and wish you the best!
