Greek Olympic Champion Anna Korakaki Discusses Stalker Nightmare

Shooting champion, Anna Korakaki revealed through an Instagram post how her life turned into a nightmare by a stalker for five years.

Earlier this month, the stalker was sentenced to five years in prison following his actions against Korakaki.

On the post, the 26-year-old Olympics 25-meter pistol event and bronze medal in the 10 -meter wrote, “He was watching my every move, my friends and my partner. He had become my shadow and my nightmare.”

She added, “I found bouquets everywhere. He was always around me. Despite the recommendations of all of us, even my father, but also the police, to stop his actions, he continued.”

Korakaki stated that five days before she left for the Tokyo Olympics the 35-year-old stalker had set fire to her partner’s car as well as attempted to break into her house.

In the run-up to the Tokyo Olympics, she mentioned that she was “mentally paralyzed,” saying, “I suffer from insomnia, fatigue, depressive episodes, intense feelings of insecurity and anxiety. My fears intensified when I learned he had used physical violence against his ex-wife in the past.”

Korakaki continued, “The fact that I entered two Olympic finals and finished with two sixth places were a feat for me. I was criticized for my performances without anyone knowing what I was going through.”
