Port Elizabeth, South Africa - A marathon runner from Despatch will have to learn to walk again after some of the "spectators" in Walmer township attacked her during the Algoa Bus Bay to Bay Challenge on Saturday, stabbing her three times in the back with a knife.
"My legs immediately went lame, said Theresa Matthysen, 42, from her hospital bed on Sunday.
"And when I fell down, they stole my shoes off my feet. They also took my wristwatch."
The men fled into the township after they had robbed her of her shoes and wristwatch.
