Pregnant shooter will compete in London Olympics
Nur Suryani Mohamed Taibi will be shooting for two at the London Olympics.
The Malaysian shooter will be eight months pregnant when she's scheduled to participate in the 10m air rifle event this summer. Her doctors have given her the tentative OK to compete, as has her husband and Malaysian Olympic officials. Most importantly, Suryani feels she'll be ready....
The nation's best shooter will make some concessions to her gestational state. She plans on leaving London before the closing ceremony since doctors recommend she not fly after 35 weeks. And she won't be competing in the 50m competition, even though she achieved the qualifying marks.
"Yeah, I cannot do a prone position with this big stomach," she said.

3. This is a nice non-controversial thread to post in there
That will certainly turn into a hellfire and brimstone flamewar.

5. It would just get locked.
Unless you can come up with a policy spin, this is probably the most appropriate place for the story, other than "Parenting".
