It may be hard to believe, but a Chilean Olympic weightlifter gave birth to a baby boy during a work-out session in the gym, without having realized she was pregnant.
Elizabeth Poblete, a 22-year-old weightlifter who came in 12th place at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, said she had felt unwell the morning she have birth but didn’t know she was pregnant.
Her son, who was born three months premature, remains in intensive care at a local hospital. (BBC)
