Last year, Joey Mantia showed himself to be one of the top inline speed skaters in the world. This year, he proved to be the best.

Not only did he win the overall titles on both track and road at the recent World Championships, but he once again won the marathon.

In this, his second Planet podcast, the 20-year-old from Ocala, Fla., talks about the championships, his successes and frustrations, and his plans for the future.
