Canadian 800m record-holder Melissa Bishop-Nriagu introduced by way of social media on Tuesday that she and her husband, Osi, expect their second baby this July.
“A bundle of affection is on the best way!” Bishop wrote in a caption on Instagram. “Our household is rising by one this July and we’re so excited. “Corinne is asking all of the questions (not the place do infants come from…but), and if she’ll get a cupcake when the brand new child comes.”
Bishop-Nriagu and her husband married in 2017 and welcomed their first child woman, Corrine, in July 2018. After taking time to return to working, the Eganville, Ont.-native returned to the monitor for the 2019 summer time season. Sadly, harm minimize her season quick, however she got here again to win her first 800m race of 2020 and formally start her marketing campaign for the 2020 summer time Olympics.
Her third Olympics didn’t go in addition to she’d hoped because of a hamstring harm within the days main as much as the race (Bishop completed fourth in her warmth and didn’t advance to the ultimate), and lots of of her followers anticipated to see her on the beginning line on the World Championships this summer time in Eugene, Oregon. After all, given the timing, we’ll have to attend for her redemption race.
