SAO PAULO – A Chilean weightlifter gave birth while training, not having known she was pregnant!
Elizabeth Poblete, 22, competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics last year as one of Chilean’s female weightlifters.
While training in  Brazi, on December 8th, Poblete began to feel unwell.  However, she suddenly gave birth during her session!
The baby was three months premature, weighing only 2.25 pounds and measuring 14 inches. They were taken together to the hospital, where the baby is still in intensive care.
Poblete was released, however, reportedly because she could not pay for the care.
It is likely Poblete had no idea she was pregnant as female athletes can often not have periods during times of intense exercise.
