London 2012 double-gold medallist Sanya Richards-Ross has claimed every female track-and-field athlete she knows has had an abortion after revealing she had one herself just before the previous Olympics.

Richards-Ross, who won the 400 metres and 4x400m titles five years ago, having also claimed relay gold in 2004 and 2008, disclosed she terminated a pregnancy one day before leaving for the Beijing Games in her new book, Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile Has Taught Me about God and Life.
