Olympic runner Alysia Montaño had accomplished all her dreams but one: being a mum. When she finally went for it, she faced her biggest challenge yet — her sponsors.
Alysia Montaño is a six-time USA Outdoor champion.
She gained huge notoriety in 2014 when she competed in a race while eight months' pregnant.
Like other track athletes, she isn't paid a salary by a league. Instead income for track athletes comes almost exclusively from sponsorship deals signed with companies like Nike and Asics.
But for pro athletes who want to have a child, the decision means they could lose their sponsorship.
Montaño believes it's time companies started walking the talk, and change their policies around female athletes and pregnancy.
