These results show that the work being put in by the swimmers and their coaches with the support of the Association, the Maltese Olympic Committee and SportMalta are bearing fruit. We are optimistically cautious for our sport’s participation in the forthcoming Commonwealth Games in 2022, the  Games of the Small States of Europe in 2023 and the Olympic Games in 2024” commented Joe Caruana Curran, President of the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta.
