WATCH: Nike “Not Backing Up What they are Preaching,” Olympian Alysia Montaño Says
By Sentinel News Wire
Published May 15, 2019

Olympic runner Alysia Montaño is calling out organized sports and sponsors for allegedly discriminating against pregnant athletes. The seven-time USA champion famously competed in 2014 while eight months pregnant with her first child. Montaño told the New York Times that when she first spoke to Nike about having a baby, she was told they would pause her contact and stop paying her. Montaño joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss how advertising is not marrying reality, and what the sports industry needs to do to protect women.
