Switzerland’s Nicola Spirig has been featured on the cover of Swiss magazine Schweizer Illustrierte with news that she is expecting a baby. Unlike the other Olympic medalists, Spirig has not competed since her victory in London.

According to the Associated Press, the Olympic gold medalist is due to give birth in May, meaning she got pregnant shortly after her thrilling win.

Spirig will take time away from triathlon, but will have the goal of returning in time to try to defend her gold medal in 2016 in Rio.

Spirig’s partner is Reto Hug, a professional triathlete who has announced he is retiring from competition.
