Top 5 Mom Athletes

May 05, 2013

A good mother is one of the most underrated jobs in the world, but how about being a mother and a Pro Athete? It's like Wonderwoman defending the Universe from evil, plus she has to feed her baby 8 times a day. It' a total miracle when a female athlete comes back to her sport after having a baby. Let's celebrate the ones who are the best with the Top 5 Mom Athletes:

#5: Juli Inkster

Juli Inkster was a female golfer in the 80s that blew the competition away year after year. In the early 90s, she had three kids and went on a PGA slump. Somehow, in 1999, she had the best year of her life winning two majors.

#4: Jennie Finch

In 2006, after returning from having her first son, Jennie Finch recorded 12 strikeouts in just 5 innings. Now that's one quick fastball baby!

#3: Hayley Wickenheiser

Hayley Wickenheiser is the greatest female hockey player on the planet. She is the only woman to play full-time Professional Hockey throughout her whole career. 10 years ago , she adopted her boyfriend's son Noah and during that time she won a Gold Medal in the 2002 Olympics.

#2: Sheryl Swoopes

The greatest woman to ever play basketball is hands down Sheryl Swoopes, so you wouldn't even guess that she has been raising her baby boy Jordan throughout most of her career! While travelling in the WNBA since the league first started in 1996, Sheryl probably missed out on a lot of Jordan's big moments, but now that she is retired, she is happy that she can spend more time with her son!

#1: Kim Cljisters

Tennis is arguably the most competitive sport for women so when Kim Clijsters had her first baby, she was considered to be retired. Until... "The Mother of All Comebacks"...That was the headline nearly every newspaper used when Kim won the 2009 U.S. Open. She became the first mother to win a major since Evonne Goolagong Cawley won Wimbledown in 1980. It was only a couple years earlier that Kim had announced her retirement, citing injuries and wanting to start a family.

It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3
