Disney Marathon Results - Press Release

WALT DISNEY WORLD INLINE MARATHON
TAKES SKATERS AROUND THE WORLD


Joey Mantia of Team Hyper Captures Second Annual Walt Disney World Inline Marathon in 1:19:35


LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (May 2) - Joey Mantia (Ocala, FL) of Team Hyper raced to the finish in a time of 1 hour 19 minutes and 35 seconds to capture the Second Annual Walt Disney World Inline Marathon on Sunday morning at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex. Cecelia Baena (Cypress, CA) of Team Hyper, who crossed the line in 1 hour 34 minutes and 3 seconds, was the top female finisher for the second year in a row as more than 1,700 inline skaters from 37 states and seven countries competed in the Walt Disney World Inline Marathon and Half Marathon sponsored by the International Inline Skating Association.

The thrilling men’s division finish included the 18-year-old Mantia skating just two seconds faster than Dane Lewis (Mission Viejo, CA), 1:19:37, and four seconds ahead of U.S. speed skating Winter Olympian KC Bouttiette (Park City, UT) of Team Hyper, who placed third in 1:19:39. In the woman’s race, Kelly Gunther (Clinton Township, MI) finished a mere second behind Baena. Complete searchable results are available online at www.disneyworldsports.com.

"It was an amazing race. The course and the fans made the event very entertaining, and being so close to home made it even more special," said Mantia. "It was especially great to win this year after finishing a disappointing thirteenth place last year."

U.S. Olympic speed skating medallists Derek Parra (Orlando) and Jennifer Rodriquez (Miami) officially started the race, which whisked skaters down Hollywood Boulevard inside the Disney-MGM Studios and along a charming coastal village at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, before skating past the 11 nations that comprise the World Showcase at Epcot. The race circled back to Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex for the half marathon finish, while the marathoners completed a second loop for the full 26.2 miles.

The Walt Disney World Inline Marathon Weekend kicked off with a skate and fitness expo on Saturday at the Milk House at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. Representatives from the skate and fitness industry exhibited the latest inline products and services. More than 80 children also participated in the All Star Kids Classic as Olympic luge medallist Chris Thorpe officially started the races. Thorpe and Parra followed the event with an autograph signing for the young inline skaters.

Spread over 200 acres adjacent to the Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney’s Wide World of Sports® Complex plays host to more than 170 events each year for professional and amateur athletes in some 30 sports. The state-of-the-art facility includes nine venues and is home to more than 40 Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) National Championships, Atlanta Braves Spring Training, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Training and the All Star Cafe sports-themed restaurant.
