Durban - One half of the famed Mr Price Russian twins, Oleysa Nurgalieva, may want to changed her mind about taking up joint South African/Russian citizenship after her kit bag was stolen from inside the Mr Price hospitality area after the race.

The 29-year-old was runner-up behind compatriot Tatiana Zhirkova in her second down run witch sister Elena finishing in third.

Mr Price team manager Gwen van Lingen said: "We are still hoping it was a case of mistaken identity. We think one of our other athletes might have taken the bag by mistake but we will only know for sure on Monday when things are back to normal."

The bag not only contained all her clothing but also her camera with many pictures of her trip on it.
