Have you ever heard of Karla Drew? Unless you're a hardened athletics fan then probably not - but she's about to get a lot more famous.
Drew is actually a rising star in the world of Heptathlon, and is coached by the man who helped Jess Ennis-Hill to Olympic gold, Toni Minichiello.
However it seems she may have a career as a psychic if her career in track and field doesn't work out. Last evening The 25-year-old posted a picture of a £5,10-way football accumulator bet on her Twitter profile, which if it came in would be worth an incredible £50,000.
She posted the message last evening, needing Uruguay to beat Chile and Panama to earn a draw with Canada having already successfully predicted eight results including England's win over Scotland and Brazil's victory over Austria.
It turns out her luck was in and she scooped the big win at odds of just over ten thousand to one. To put that in perspective, the odds of being struck by lightning stand at around three thousand to one.

As yet, Drew hasn't posted a response to her followers after her big win, but did speak of her win when replying to a fellow Twitter user.
Splash the cash
The win is likely to be particularly useful for Drew, who is a student at Sheffield Hallam University. The average amount of funding for a 'Podium' level athlete from the National Lottery in the UK is around £18,500. The average figure for Development level athletes is closer to £7,500, meaning the win could have more than quadrupled her income in one fell swoop.
Overall then, not a bad evening's work at all.
