Away from the spotlight
Whilst the main focus of this weekend was on our young stars, this weekend was also an opportunity for our older athletes to compete. They did not disappoint and many of our athletes performed well, registering several personal bests.In the sprints, we had three standout performances. The first was Luca Farrugia, who won the men’s 400m, registering a new personal best of 49.83, dipping under the 50 second mark for the first time in his career making him 3rd best time U20 all time. Warren Zammit won gracefully the men’s 200m, with a hand time of 22.1, as unfortunately the electronic time did not register. Sarah Chouhal won the women’s 400m hurdles race, debuting in this event and breaking the u18 and u20 national record with a time of 1.06.90. On the field, Luca Martini won the men’s hammer throw with a throw of 56.88m , mere centimeters off his own national record. Overall, all our athletes performed exceptionally, with personal bests and seasons bests all over.
