"Dr. Poul-Erik Paulev of the Department of Medical Physiology, University of Copenhagen writes that pregnancy seems to increase muscle strength in female athletes.
Female top athletes - just following the time when they gave birth to their first child - have set several world records. Of course, this is acceptable as a natural and unintended event. However, in some countries female athletes have become pregnant for 2-3 months, in order to improve their performance just after the abortion.
Sports always hearbreaks female energy and purity doesn’t get your picture on the cereal box; winning does."
