Nur Suryani is the first woman to represent her country in shooting at the Olympics but it is the fact that her baby is due in September that has been making headlines.
The 29-year-old, was unable to claim a spot in the final, finishing in 34th place after shooting 392 targets out of 400.
Nur Suryani is ranked 47th in the world and won a gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and a bronze at the Asian Games in the same year.
Afterwards she said she only felt “three or four” kicks during the competition and that she had told the baby “to behave herself”.
The women’s 10m air rifle qualifying was won by Sylwia Bogacka of Poland, who scored 399, with Chinese world No 1 and gold medal favourite Yi Siling second.
