Swimmer Sasha Gatt wins Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month award for May

Olympic swimmer Sasha Gatt has been awarded the Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month Award for the month of May.

Gatt is a familiar face for this award, which she already won in August 2020 and June 2021.

In the Games of Small States of Europe 2023, Sasha Gatt won three medals in the first two days of the games. She won a silver medal in the women’s 800m freestyle and a bronze medal in the women’s 400m Freestyle, finishing just behind the swimmer from San Marino, Arianna Valloni in both competitions.

She was also part of the women’s team which achieved a silver medal in the 4x200m freestyle Relay.

The trophy for the May 2023 Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month together with the sports apparel voucher were presented to Sasha Gatt by Robert Micallef, Chief Commercial Officer, and David Cassar, Business Development and Marketing Manager of Atlas Insurance. The Malta Sports Journalists Association was represented by General Secretary Lorraine Cunningham.

This award is a joint initiative of the Malta Sports Journalists Association and Atlas Insurance.

The adjudicating panel of this award takes note of all the youth athletes’ achievements of the month under review and at the same time it invites local sport associations and federations to send in their nominations for consideration if they feel that any of their under-21 athletes have distinguished themselves during that month.

Nominations for this award may be sent via email to info@maltasportsjournalists.com. The rules and regulations of the award can be viewed on the website www.maltasportsjournalists.com.
