Untitled[edit]

I know of a story where apparently Akii-Bua's Olympic gold medal was stolen when his house was burgled. He returned home several years later to find the burglar had returned the medal, which was hanging on his garden gate post.

This story may be apocryphal, but if anyone knows the details it would be, in my opinion, a nice addition to the article.
