For the final race of her career in January 2018, Olympic gold medalist Julia Mancuso donned a Captain Marvel suit and cape for her run down the slopes at the world cup in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy. Earlier this week she was back in the Wonder Woman outfit in a similar pose, this time showing off her baby bump.
Using the hashtag #momsaretherealsuperheroes, Mancuso posted the photo with the caption, “We’ve been keeping a little secret from you guys … coming soon … July 2019.”
A second photo with the post showed her and husband Dylan Fish on the beach. They were first married in Mancuso’s hometown of Squaw Valley, California, in 2016, then a year later in Fiji, where Fish is a resort general manager. This will be the first child for the couple, but Mancuso didn’t drop any hints on the gender.
Mancuso is the most decorated American woman in alpine skiing at the Olympic Winter Games, with four medals to her name including gold in giant slalom in 2006. She also won a pair of silver medals in Vancouver in 2010, one in downhill and one in combined, plus a combined bronze medal from 2014 in Sochi. She also has five world championship medals to go along with seven career world cup wins before retiring from the circuit after the 2017-18 season.
