A strong contingent of 51 athletes will be representing Malta at the upcoming European Company Sports Games in Bordeaux, France, being held between June 14 and 18.
The European Company Sport Games offer a unique concept that brings together thousands of employees from companies all over Europe to compete in different sports.
Up to 7,500 participants are expected to travel to the French city for the 24th edition of this event, which is organised by the European Corporate Sport Federation.
The Maltese delegation, consisting of passionate individuals from various corporate backgrounds, will be participating in multiple sporting disciplines including Athletics (Track & Field), bowling, tennis and badminton. The delegation is led by the president of the Malta Employees Sport Association, Mark Marlow.
The participation of the Maltese athletes in this prestigious event not only reflects their dedication and commitment to their respective sports but also highlights the Malta Employees Sport Association (MESA)’s passion for promoting a healthy and active lifestyle within the corporate community.
Interest in MESA’s activities by athletes of different levels of ability has increased significantly in recent years. Throughout last season, MESA hosted scores of events in various disciplines, including football, badminton, beach volley, athletics, table tennis, pool, darts, bowling, and snooker. Participation in these events continues to increase year after year.
While the level of athletes at this event is exceptionally high, Maltese athletes would be looking towards emulating their performance in Arnhem last year where a total of 12 medals were won in three different disciplines. These included four gold medals in badminton, four silver and three bronze medals in athletics and another silver in beachvolley.
