Local runner, Fabio La Mantia

Congratulations to Fabio La Mantia who achieved a silver medal for the Comrades last week. Fabio runs for Greenstone Hill Running Club (GHRC) and ran a time of 7 hours 21 minutes.  This is the fourth time he has run the Comrades and the second silver medal. Fabio has shown the dedication and commitment required to achieve this kind of accomplishment. You can see him pounding the roads six days a week.

According to his wife, Celeste,  this year’s comrades was a tough one for him because ten kilometres into the race his legs felt unusually heavy (Fabio attributes this to over training). Again, with sheer discipline and the perserverance required from a top athlete he didn’t give up! Fabio unselfishly gives kudos to his lifelong friend, Byron Benson, who helped him through the rough patches. They crossed the finish line together, very tired, but happy at successfully achieving their goal.
