Former Xterra champ Jamie Whitmore expecting twins
Posted Sep 03 2009 9:26am
It seems like the last few days have yielded nothing but bad news from the world of triathlon, so it came as a wonderful surprise when we learned that former Xterra offroad triathlon champ Jamie Whitmore is expecting twins.
Many insiders considered her the Superwomen
of off road triathlon because of her fearless, daring, and no holds
barred racing style.
All that came to a dramatic end when she was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago.
Since that time Whitmore has battled cancer and gone through way too many surgical procedures to list. So when we read her recent blog entry entitled, "Shocking but Surprising" we almost didn' t believe our eyes.
"Over the last year and a half I went from being a professional triathlete to fighting cancer and becoming disabled. My life has completely changed. Just when I thought I was adapting pretty well I got hit with more life altering news. The doctors figured out why I have been so nauseous since my last surgery . . . I' m pregnant . . . with TWINS!
You read it correctly I am pregnant with twins and due sometime in late January, early February. When I first got the news I was pretty shocked. Even more shocked when they told me there were two. Both of them went through the surgery with me so they are already proving to be pretty tough."
