Akor had to be carried away from the podium at Lagos City Marathon

Organisers of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon have described that one of the participants at the just concluded third edition of the race, Mary Akor, was being denied her entitlement as one of the winners in the Nigerian category. The organisers alleged that Akor dumped Nigeria for the United States of America at the peak of her career in 2004 and therefore was no longer eligible to participate as a Nigerian. Akor attempted to collect the N1 million prize money for the first Nigerian woman. Security men had to carry her away from the podium. She has had other issues, Mary Akor failed a drug test and accepted a two-year ban from competition, retroactive to May 6, 2013. (02/14/2018) Views: 1,040 ‚ö°AMP
