Small team from the Malta Weightlifting Association (MWA) had the opportunity to participate in a training in Brisbane, Australia between the 24th August and 3rd September 2017. The Maltese national weightlifting coach Mr. Jesmond Caruana together with Maltese national athletes, Kyle Micallef and Kieran Mifsud and Jessica Edge have participated in this camp at Cougars Weightlifting Club under the guidance of Miles Wydall and Angela Wydall.
The challenging aspect of this initiative was the travelling distance as well as the timing of the training camp given that two weeks later the athletes were competing in an international competition. These training sessions were however essential for the Maltese team as apart from the weightlifting aspects and technicalities as part of its development for future athletes.
The MWA would like to show its appreciation and gratitude towards the International Weightlifting Federation for this camp.
