    Austrians Win Empire State Building Run

    By VERENA DOBNIK, Associated Press Writer

    NEW YORK - Austrians ruled the Empire State Building on Tuesday, scampering 86 flights to the observation deck to capture the annual run up the Manhattan skyscraper.

    Rudolf Reitberger and Andrea Mayr won the men's and women's divisions in a race in which a 92-year-old Italian man who trains on Mount Etna was among the competitors.

    Reitberger and Mayr are friends from Julbach, Austria, and train together for the Empire State Building Run-Up. Reitberger covered the 1,576 steps in 10 minutes, 37 seconds. Mayr set the women's course record at 12:08, breaking the previous mark of 12:19 set in 1996 by American Belinda Soszyn.

    Finishing second and third among the men were Ran and Dan Alterman, identical twins from Israel.

    A total of 117 men and women from 11 countries took part in the trek organized by New York Road Runners.

    Last year's champ, Paul Crake of Australia, did not compete. The 2003 female champion returned with her new husband.

    Cindy Moll-Harris of Indianapolis placed second in 13:26 — 20 seconds more than last year. Her husband, James Harris, finished 23rd among the men at 13:53.

    Chico Scimone prepares for the Empire State climb by training on volcanic Mount Etna in Sicily. He scaled the Manhattan skyscraper for the 14th time, finishing in 43:25, last among the 84 men.

    In Sicily, he walks up Mount Etna five days a week before going to work as a lounge pianist.

    "A lot of people ask me, do you see a doctor?" he said. "I have one checkup a year: If I get to the top of the Empire State Building, I'm OK."

    On top of the building, he swept up his 19-month-old great granddaughter, Isabella Jameson, and greeted his granddaughter, Kathleen Jameson, and his daughter, Pat Peters, all of Norristown, Pa.

    For Kyle Restina, 43, of Scotia, the race proved she's in shape after losing 135 pounds. Two years ago, she weighed 270.

    "I'm a little sweaty," she said by phone after finishing in 18:02. "But I can breathe and I can talk."

    Eh, she only got a little freezer burnt. Just give her a good blow-drying and a few new windows and she'll be fine. :wink:
