Thursday Morning Man: Joey Mantia!
The Winter Olympics are over but this guy is too cute to forget. He’s 32-year-old U.S. speed skater Joey Mantia who was featured this week on the Kenneth in the 212 blog. He just missed out on a medal last month but he’s got plenty of other triumphs on his resume. 28-time world champion, and world record holder. Apart from his world titles, he won two gold medals at the 2003 Pan American Games and a further gold medal at the 2007 Pan American Games, and won the American Speed Skater of the Year award three times in a row, in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
