Help

One of the first events of the London Olympics on 28 July is the 10-metre women's air rifle competition.

Nur Suryani Mohamed Taibi, a shooter from Malaysia, will compete at the Royal Artillery Barracks while eight months pregnant.

At least three expectant mothers have competed at the Olympics before, but Suryani will be the most pregnant athlete to have taken part.
