Results – MAAA Challenge Meeting 1 – 6th and 7th March, 2014

Click here for all the results of the events held over the week-end (6th and 7th of March) at the Matthew Micallef Athletics Stadium on the occasion of the first Challenge Meeting of the Season. 

Field events continue to steal the local limelight as was often the case last season.  With Antonella Chouhal, at the last of the Pre-Season Meetings improving the National Record in the Women’s Hammer, Open Category, this weekend saw Luke Farrugia and Bradley Mifsud establishing National Junior Records in the Discus and Javelin respectively.
 
Athletics was further graced with the performance of Rachel Fitz in Sopot Poland, participating in the 60m sprint where she clocked a very creditable time of 7.86 seconds at this showcase of the IAAF World Indoors representing.
 
Congratulations to all these athletes, while not failing to mention the good turn-out at the Marsa and other impressive performances which auger well as this early stage of the Track & Field season.
 
Yours in sport
