Edward Bezzina Youth Shot Putt National record at World Athletics Day
The shot putt youth record stood for quite a long time, with a distance of 12.70m. During the World Athletics Day held at Matthew Micallef St.John Track & Field stadium on Wednesday 7th May 2014, Edward a student from Stella Maris School Gzira, throw the 4Kg shot to a distance of 13.21m, a good half a metre over the previous record.
Edward is a dedicated youngster, coached by our club coach Genc Dapi. This is his last year as a youth, and as from next year he will be throwing a 5Kg shot when he moves to the new intermediate category. Edward is also a member of our Pembroke Athleta Athletics Club. Well Done Edward!
