Two long-standing national records were set during yesterday’s third pre-season meet held at the Matthew Micallef St John athletics track in Marsa.

Mario Mifsud, of Allcomer Aloysians, broke the national mark in the discus event with an effort of 45.21 metres. The previous best was set by David Vella 14 years ago when he had managed a throw of 42.76 metres.

Shot putter Daniel Vella, also of Allcomer Aloysians, set a new national best in the junior category when he managed a throw of 13.12 metres…. 99 centimetres better than the previous best set by Daniel Spiteri Sacco 11 years ago.

The meeting offered some interested races on the track with Rebecca Camilleri just having the better of Diane Borg in the 60 metres.

Camilleri crossed the finish line first in 7.70 seconds to stake a claim to represent Malta in the forthcoming World Indoor Championships to be held in Istanbul in the second week of March.
