    it is healthy what MFA did (change) we need a big change in the MOC . we need a new fresh committee that are ready to work with the associations . Its easy gather all associations now find the best athletes and give them a chance to train for something they could compete in . a lot of good maltese athletes are being left behind and forgotten . i will assure you that if the athletes have something to look up to and some help they will get there
