American runner Alysia Montano’s incredible act of bravery stole the headlines on Thursday at the USA Track and Field Championships, despite not winning the race after completing the 800m race.

The 31-year-old athlete remarkably, who finished more than 19 seconds behind the winner on Thursday in extreme heat, recording a time of 2 minutes, 21.40 seconds, ran the two laps while five months pregnant with her second child, much to the delight of the crowd.

Montano, whose child is due in November, seemed to cherish the occasion as she was pictured finishing the race at the Hornet Stadium with a huge grin on her face while wearing a Wonder Woman top and a trademark flower in her hair.

Montano then said she wasn’t worried about the extreme temperatures on Thursday as she hydrated before the race and stayed in the shade until it was time to take the track.
