Saturday, April 14, 2012, 13:15

Alfred Debono a 63 year veteran athlete was undergoing an intensive training in the last months to prepare himself for the Boston marathon that is to be held on Monday 16th April, Debono’s last intensive training session was held last 10th April, just 6 days before the event. He ran 10,000 meters on track,  in 42m 02s. This promises well for a good performance at Boston marathon. In fact  he will be at the starting line with thousands of other athletes from over the World.

The world’s five most prestigious marathons are the London’s, Berlin, New York ,Chigago and Boston’s. Having already run 4 of these, Debono’s aim is to run the last remaining – Boston’s to be able to claim to have run them all. Not an easy feat for many sixty year olds to have tallied. Debono is being assisted by Medcomms Ltd and Gasan Mamo Insurance.
