RE: Mary Onyali to call it quit
can you believe she is still the fastest woman in Africa at the age of 36. She won the double at the Abuja 2003 Games and was part of the relay team that won gold and set a new African record. she is quitting after the Athens Olympics next year. She has three medals from the World Cup in athletics and close to two-and-half dozen in international event. She has two Olympic bronze medals. Holds the African record in 200m. 10 gold medals and a bronze in four all African games appearance. No African athlete, man or woman has a richer collection of All Africa Games medals.

At the All-Africa Games in Nairobi in 1987,Mary showed the steel she is made of. She flew to Nairobi determined to win three gold medals –– 100m, 200m and the 4x100m relay. After the 100m went to Tina Iheagwam, the Mbaukwu (Anambra State) girl convinced officials to let her run the 4x400m final, something she had never done before. Her arguments swayed the officials and they gave her the baton to anchor. She did it at a sprint, unschooled in the art of running the one-lap and relying only on how she had watched Innocent Egbunike do it time and again. The end justified the means, and Mary came home exhausted, and the picture of her spread-eagled on the track of Kasarani International Sports Centre went round the world.
The wife and mother is a telecommunications graduate at Texas Southern University, Houston, in the United States.

Mary is the best

In the days when we didn't have football glory, it was track and field that used to give Nigeria positive image abroad.

She always have her best and I wish her luck in her future career
