    Anyone of you familiar with Mary Akor? She sounds like a psychopath:

    But yes a sort of frightening tale....I've had a couple of experiences with a lunatic in a race. It's not fun.

    Truly a nut....

    So it was a huge surprise for athletics buffs when Akor forced her way to the podium when the first three Nigerian women: Deborah Pam, Olude Fadekemi and Olamide Oluwaseun were called to the podium to receive their prizes.

    Akor, an athlete who dumped Nigeria at the peak of her career for whatever reasons jumped on the podium to claim a prize for Nigerian runners.

    The security men did not manhandle her, they just carried her away from the podium and when she insisted on causing commotion, top officials of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon asked that she be allowed to stand on the podium since all she will be collecting at the ceremony is a dummy cheque.
