Rio Olympic champion Gwen Jorgensen announced on her social media channels yesterday that she’s expecting her first child with husband Patrick Lemieux this August. Both Jorgensen and Lemieux make no secret of their love for great food and chose to follow that theme in their announcement.
The news comes as no surprise as Jorgensen was clear that her post-Olympic plans included starting a family. In an interview following the NYC Marathon (where she ran a 2:41:01 in her debut at the distance) with Triathlete.com back on Nov. 8, Jorgensen laid out what the perfect year from that point would look like: “I get pregnant right now, ...
