MOSCOW (AP) -- After winning her latest, and perhaps last, gold medal, Yelena Isinbayeva almost immediately looked at the next challenge ahead -- motherhood.
Sports greatest female pole vaulter put on one of her best shows ever at 31, turning a half decade of losses, injuries and frustration into Russia's best night so far at the world championships.
Now, the athlete who almost singlehandedly turned women's pole vaulting from a sporting oddity into a star event will be looking out for herself.
Soon, she said shortly after Tuesday night's victory, she will be pregnant.
She says she will be "a kind of walking penguin."
