In the Age Group C Category Matthew Satariano clocked a time of 28.21.
“This year’s Easter Meet returned after an absence of two years due to the pandemic. In spite of international participation not yet returning to what we were used to pre-Covid, it was still a good competition with two new National Records established by Thomas Wareing and several Easter Meet records being achieved. Several personal bests were also registered.” explained Joe Caruana Curran, President, Aquatic Sports Association of Malta.
The next event hosted by the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta is scheduled to take place on Saturday 21st May, when the next edition of the 2021/2022 Time Trials will be held at TalQroqq.
