3 Manny Mania finalists chosen in Durban


(Durban) 18 June, 2011 – Dlamini Dlamini of La Lucia came out on top at today’s qualifier for Red Bull Manny Mania 2011 at Wave House Skate Park in Umhlanga, Durban.  He will be heading to Johannesburg on June 26, 2011 to compete against other participants selected from four qualifying events across South Africa as part of the largest international event for amateur manual skaters.

“I’m so stoked to be going to Johannesburg for the final. The level of skating in the final was really high it could have gone to anyone. I’d love to get the trip to New York, but for now I’m focused on the final next week.”

 Second and third place went to Khule Ngubane and George Van Blerk, respectively, among over 35 competitors at the event.

The winner of the national final on June 26 will be flown to New York City on an all expenses paid trip to represent South Africa at the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final for amateurs on August 20, 2011.
