It was a 'first' for more than one reason this Saturday on the wind-swept cliffs of Dingli.
It was the first multi-sport event on the island thus ushering in the 2013 Season, which promises to be the most hard-fought and exciting season in the history of Triathlon in Malta.
It was also the first ever multi-sport event organised by the newly-affiliated club of Mellieha A.C.
Overall it was a huge success topped with a very good turnout and an exciting race. The veterans of the sports racing it along the rookies was a truly impressive sight and an extra dash of excitement for partecipants, organisers and spectators alike.
The titles were clinched by Fabio Spiteri and Michelle Vella-Wood, with David Galea and Nathan Farrugia together with Hannah Pace and Danica Bonello-Spiteri completing the podiums.
This race serves as a taster and check for the Malta National Duathlon Championships which will be held on the 18 May.
One of the aims of the Malta Triathlon Federation is to assist its members and athletes not only on the racing grounds but also in whatever ways and manner possible in preparing yourself for the best performance possible.
