Nicola Spirig is pregnant with her second child, due in May, and said she is open to competing in her fifth Olympics in 2020 if she has a medal chance, according to Swiss media.
Spirig, 34, won the 2012 Olympic triathlon in a photo finish over Sweden’s Lisa Norden. Then she gave birth to Yannis in March 2013 before coming back to take silver behind American Gwen Jorgensen in Rio.
Spirig is the only woman to win multiple Olympic triathlon medals. No triathlete has competed in five Olympics.
Jorgensen, 30, also hopes to have a baby next year and return to defend her title at Tokyo 2020.Follow @nzaccardi
