Weightlifter Unexpectedly Gives Birth While Training 10

Elizabeth Poblete, a Chilean Olympic weightlifter, got a big surprise when she gave birth to a boy while she was training in a Brazilian gym. Poblete didn't know she was 6 months pregnant and had even consulted a doctor a week previous. Head weight trainer in the gym, Horacio Reis, said: "It was a surprise for me. A week ago I acted as a judge in a competition in Chile and this girl was competing. All went well and she won the competition. I could see she was a big girl, round and strong. That's all I noticed." Both mother and child were brought to the hospital after the surprise delivery. The boy remains in intensive care and it is reported that he can already clean and jerk a full 10oz bottle.
