President Mr. Davide Cachia.

It’s with the utmost pleasure that I write this message as the new President of the Malta Triathlon Federation. 2020 and 2021 saw a huge change not only in our sport but that in our lives. We had to relearn how to live our lives to the most – what was important to us, and what was “an added extra”. We had to reshape our thinking and learn to adapt quickly and manage our mental health with all of the ups and downs of the past two years, many of us using the outlet of our sport to help us recharge ourselves during these past two years.I wish to thank you all for your support and please welcome the newly elected Executive members Ms. Karen Amato , Mr. Kevin Zammit and the continuous support of Mr. Warren Muscat the MTF General Secretary, Ms. Germaine Vassallo (treasurer) , Dr. Michelle Vella Wood and Dr John Vella . A big thank you also to the Malta Olympic Committee for their support. I believe sport to be a great outlet for people and that the clubs will continue to perpetuate the ideals of Friendly Sporting Clubs – a group of people of all ages who want to have fun, socialise and grow together as a team/club whilst enjoying the sport of Triathlon and other sports.The Malta Triathlon Federation would like to make positive changes in the coming months and this Federation is run entirely through volunteer support. Our objective is to support all the Youth clubs and Triathlon Clubs and to continue to grow this beautiful sport. Our aim is to also help young and adult competing athletes on a National and International level representing Malta. Your comments on how to improve and support are really important to us . Thank you all once again and finally let us all hope and pray for the families in Ukraine who are suffering and to soon see an end to this terrible situation .
