Dimos Manginas

Alexandroupoli / Greece

I started running when Ι was 12 years old. The inspiration came when I was attending track and field games that my cousin was competing in Javelin. Since that time I decided that I wanted to run professionally. My dream was to be a part of the Greek National Team and practice with the top coaches & athletes in my country. My dream came true and I have recorded many appearances with the team and 1st places at national level in 5-10km races!

The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is a great opportunity and it was my dream to compete in an International American Marathon like Los Angeles.
