Luke Farrugia lands a triple record in the Discus Event
Incredible but true. The upcoming Pembroke Athleta Luke Farrugia is breaking new ground in the discus discipline in the Junior category. Coached by Genc Dapi, luke has broken the discus record on three successive MAAA Challege track and field meetings.
Luke in Challenge 1, threw the 1.75kg discus up in the air to distance of 41.81m surpassing the previours record of Mifsud. Within a couple of weeks in challenge 2, he moved the record up by another seven centimeters to 41.88m. Then came the massive distance of 45.76m record from this promising Junior athlete in challenge 3. Luke almost equalled the record yet again for the same distance by
a mere three centimeters in the last meeting held on Saturday in the Malta International Track and Field meet. Well done Luke. Keep it up!
This track & field season 2014, is going to be a successful year as it was with the
previous seasons, for coach Genc Dapi, when his other athlete Lawrance Ransley broke the long standing shot put record in the Senior category on a number of occasions.
