Mamas going for the gold!

Most people can't imagine training for an Olympic sport, let alone doing so while raising young children. But for Olympic moms, motherhood and the pursuit of their dreams go hand in hand. Who are these amazing mom-letes? Check out our slideshow of the top 6 amazing Olympian moms.

Jennie Finch

Jennie Finch-Diagle, 27, pitches for the US softball team and is mom to 2-year-old Ace.

This amazing mom was back playing softball at national tryouts only 5 weeks after giving birth! The team travels a lot, so her son Ace ends up away from home much of the time.

"I'm just so grateful that [Ace] can be on the road with me," Finch told NBC. "I can't get enough of him."

What gold medal advice would she give her son? "I would want Ace to learn to give everything he has at whatever he is doing, and just to be dedicated. The sky is the limit."
