Last weekend Noel Coleiro represented Malta in the Mediterranean Championships that were held in Israel. In this high level competition Coleiro managed a total of 228Kg.
It was a highly competed event and Coleiro managed the same weights as the lifter representing Spain. Coleiro was a bit unfortunate in losing the third lift but he still managed to beat the Cypriot lifter.
In this competition Malta was not competing for final points as the team has to be made up of four lifters; a senior, a Junior, a male Youth and a female Athlete.
Competitions of this caliber require a lot of financial backing and therefore it was not possible for us to send a full team and had to settle for the one lifter. Jesmond Caruana accompanied Coleiro and also served as technical official during the competition.
Also accompanying the team to serve as Technical Official was David Saliba. This Competition was made possible by the help of Eleiko Company of Sweden.
