Guest #1:


Alexandra Allred

 Alexandra Allred made the U.S. Women's Bobsled team in 1994. It was the first recognized team by the United States Olympic Committee but it would be a long haul before women would be allowed to participate in the Olympics. In 1994, Allred was named "Athlete of the Year" by the United States Olympic Committee, was profiled in Sports Illustrated and in the newspaper of more than a dozen foreign languages. Allred was also four and a half months pregnant at the time.

Shape, Fit, Fitness for Her, Sports Illustrated for Her, Muscle & Fitness, Ms. Fitness and multiple parenting magazines all carried the story, interviewing Allred on varying topics of morning sickness and childcare to sprint training and plyometrics. While training, Allred was clocked at running 21 MPH and squatting 350 pounds.
