Waterfront Marathon Crowns Joggling Champ

2006_09_24MichalKapral.jpgWhile Torontoist spent a lazy Sunday sheltered from the rain, 10,000 runners competed in the 42.2 km Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, raising nearly $250,000 for local charities.
Although Daniel Rono clocked the fastest time at 2 hours and 10 minutes, the surprise fan favourite was Michal Kapral, 34, who set the new speed record for “joggling”.
Kapral set the world record for joggling (jogging + juggling = joggling) in Toronto last September, but was soon defeated by his archnemisis, Zach Warren aka. The Jolly Juggler. The pair had a joggle-off at this year’s Boston Marathon where Warren emerged victorious with a record of 2 hours 58 minutes 23 seconds. However, Kapral crossed the finish line this morning almost a minute and a half faster than his rival’s previous record.
Kapral’s victory is seen as a great achievement for Toronto joggling enthusiasts, who hope to see joggling as an Olympic sport by 2012.
Joggle on, comrades.
