Liz McColgan somehow won World 10,000 gold in 1991 - just 9 months after giving birth to Eilish.
Liz McColgan was the 1991 world champ and 1988 Olympic silver medallist over 10K. After 21-months away from the track with an ankle injury, Eilish recently ran PBs of 15:09 and 8:43 (her mom ran 14:58 and 8:38).
Liz McColgan's dad thought he was a jinx and tried to leave the stadium but his wife pleaded and he came back in to see McGolgan win gold. People with UK IP's watch the documentary here.
Paula Radcliffe won NYC 10 months after giving birth. Liz McColgan won the 1991 World Champs 10,000 less than a year after giving birth and also won NYC that year.
