An impressive performance for Joelle Cortis and Gabriel Farrugia in the Principality of
Monaco saw them establish a New National Record on the 5km distance while running
alongside a highly competitive field.

During the World Athletics-approved MonacoRun, Cortis ran a time of 17:25, which,
pending verification by Athletics Malta, means a women’s national record over the distance.
Youngster Gabriel Farrugia (Evolve AC) ran a time of 15:27 bettering his own record by a
staggering 21 seconds. He finished 40th overall and third in the Under 20 category.
