The Maltese Olympic Committee announced the names of the Maltese contingent who will be carrying the Malta flag in Maribor, Slovenia between July 23 and 29th. Malta will be competing in athletics.
Led by MOC Director of Youth Johanna Grech, the contingent will be made up of Isaac Bonnici, Jeremy Cassar and Matthew Galea Soler.
Galea Soler wrote history for Malta last year when he brought home a bronze medal – a first for our country in these Games, in the 400m race, in a time of 48.84. Accompanying the contingent will be athletics coach Mario Bonello.
“In spite of being a small delegation Malta will be represented with some of its promising stars who will be competing against some of Europe’s already established junior athletes,” remarked Johanna Grech, Chef de Mission and MOC Director.
The first athletes to take the stage will be Isaac Bonnici and Matthew Galea Soler who will compete on July 24 when the heats for the 800m and 400m take place.
Jeremy Cassar will enter in action on July 25 with the qualifying events for the long jump.
EYOF Medallist Matthew Galea Soler will be carrying the Maltese flag during the opening ceremony on July 23.
