The Malaysian shooter will be eight months pregnant when she’s scheduled to participate in the 10m air rifle event this summer. Her doctors have given her the tentative OK to compete, as has her husband and Malaysian Olympic officials. Most importantly, Suryani feels she’ll be ready.

Suryani qualified for the Games on the Asian Shooting Championships in January, days after discovering she was pregnant. She is aware that many people will question her decision to compete — members of the family and a few in Malaysia curently have — but with the doctor’s blessings, Suryani doesn’t expect any problems.

“Yeah, I cannot do a prone position with this big stomach,” Suryani said.
