Dr Manzi has completed his seventh Marathon…… Our lovely general dental practitioner, Dr Marcelo Manzi completed his seventh full marathon this summer – this one being the full Rio De Janerio marathon, Brazil. Marcelo trains daily throughout the year, sun, rain or snow – nothing will stop him from training – It’s a passion that he has had throughout his adult life. Marcelo has completed marathons all over the world; London, New York, Berlin, Athens, Paris, Lisbon and most recently, Rio De Janerio. He is currently training for his next marathon, which he hopes to be the full marathon in either Tel Aviv or Norway which will take place next year. The Rio De Janerio marathon had a record participation this year of over twenty thousand runners taking part in the three races (full, half and disabled) and fifty thousand spectators. The Rio De Janerio marathon is an endurance run of 42km / 26.2 miles and is often considered one of the most beautiful racing routes in the world. Our team at the Wimbledon branch are very proud of Marcelo, for not only completing another marathon, but for raising money for his charity of choice (Help the Hospices) whilst doing so, and having surpassed his personal expectations on his completion time :o) WELL DONE MARCELO!!
