Olympian Alysia Montaño Kept It Real At Our Cover Shoot

Alysia Montaño adds her own flair to everything she does, including our May cover shoot.

Alysia Montaño rocks the track on the regular. In fact, last June, the 800m athlete, along with her eight-months-pregnant belly busting out of her pink singlet, raced around the track during the 800m outdoor championships. She finished dead last but received a roaring applause when she came down the home stretch. After winning the 600m indoor national title in March, six months after birthing Linnea, Montaño strutted her sassy, down-to-earth self at our cover shoot in Irvine, Calif. We brought the cameras, she brought the ‘tude—check out this video from our day with the trackster mama.
