The MAAA and our local running community was saddened to hear of the passing of Svein Arne Hansen.
The President of the European Athletics who visited Malta a number of times, most recently in 2018, made many of our international events possible. Furthermore, he has promoted and empowered some of the smaller nations within Europe to the very best of his ability. For that, we shall remain eternally thankful. On behalf of our running community on our island we send our deepest condolences to his family and friends and to European Athletics, who he has led so admirably and progressively during his term in Office.
