marrantelliThe umpiring crew in Darwin certainly had a big trip away, none more so than boundary umpire Michael Marantelli who ran in the Darwin City2surf fun run less than nine hours after he finished running the boundary in a physically demanding match, Port Adelaide v Western Bulldogs and won! The Darwin City2Surf Fun Run is a 12.7 kilometre run. Michael, who was very understated when we contacted him about the win, ran 41 minutes 23 seconds. It appears that no other umpiring identity in Darwin was prepared to get up and compete. Well done Michael.
