'It is imperative to make our counterparts in Europe aware that Triathlon in Malta is getting better, stronger and thrives to continue the momentum of the last years. On the other hand, it is very important for us to duscuss, understand and learn new ways of doing things from those with better and longer experience and implement these into the operation of the Malta Triathlon Federation'.
