Matthew Scicluna, a Pembroke Athleta athlete, who also formed part of a group of athletes in a training camp in Font Romeu last February, successfully represented our club in the 41st edition of the Gozo 8 mile race.
Over 500 runners recently took part in the 41st edition of the Gozo Half Marathon which was held on the 24th April 2016.
Matthew Scicluna managed to maintain last year’s runner-up spot in the Gozo 8 mile race whilst also managing to improve on last year’s time by clocking a route PB of 47.17. Charlie Cilia won this race and Alixander Schembri placed 3rd.
This race was of great importance to our club, since Matthew was the only club’s athlete who managed to place 2nd in this highly renowned challenging route.
Such performance augurs well for such promising athletes and we wish Matthew Scicluna further success in his future endeavours.
