Jamaican-born American 2012 Olympic 400m champion Sanya Richards-Ross is expecting her first child.
Richards, who won Olympic gold in the 4×400 meters relay at three consecutive Summer Olympics – Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and London 2012, made the announcement via her social media page on Tuesday.
“Sweetest Valentine’s gift EVER…. #BabyRoss coming Summer 2017,” she posted with a photo of her husband Aaron Ross holding and kissing her belly.
Richards-Ross is also a seven-time medalist at the World Championships in Athletics (five of which are gold). In 2009, she was the World Champion in the 400 metres.
