Epcot’s Grete Waitz statue

This statue of world-famous champion marathoner Grete Waitz stands (err, runs?) proudly in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion, near the Stave Church Gallery.

Originally sculpted in 1984 by Norwegian artist Nils Aas, the statue was first installed outside of Bislett Stadium, in Waitz’s hometown of Oslo, Norway. Later, a copy of the statue was presented to Walt Disney World to honor Waitz’s lifelong career.
