Pregnant athlete

A 16-WEEK pregnant athlete faces sanction from Malaysian sports authorities for pulling out of December's Southeast Asian Games. Yuan Yufang, a multiple gold medalist in the 20 kilometer walk at the regional games, had disappointed officials concerned at the loss of a genuine medal chance. "She should have informed us earlier so that we could prepare another walker to replace her in the Games," Karim Ibrahim, deputy president of the Malaysian Amateur Athletic Union, told a local newspaper. The 33-year-old Yuan had previously won gold at the 2001 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur after giving birth to a baby boy.
