This Woman Won A Kayaking Tournament While Nine Months Pregnant

preggers600

If you were nine months pregnant with your first child, you probably wouldn't be too keen on the idea of tumbling through violent river rapids in a small boat somewhere in Idaho. And that's why Emily Jackson is winning kayak championships and you're not.

Jackson is a two-time Women's World Kayaking Champion. The 23-year old is also due on July 19th. For someone of her clout and talent, taking a day off seems perfectly reasonable. But clearly, Emily was born with white-water in her veins. She entered and won the last two U.S. tour events, including a victory at the Payette River Games in Cascade, Idaho.

Granted, you may not know what those are, but you can watch her victory in this video and see that the Payette River doesn't exactly play nicely. Jackson's round starts at the 2:20 mark:

It's hard to think of many other accomplishments in sports more impressive* than being severely pregnant while trying to avoid the watery abyss.

*Or questionable, but we'll stick with impressive.
