Dillon Cassar and Lisa Bezzina claim cross country national titles

Dillion Cassar and Lisa Bezzina claimed the national Cross-Country title as the championships made a return on the senior national athletics calendar after an absence of a few years.

While athletes are accustomed to running on the track or on the road, this time they ran on a softer, but more challenging terrain, around the perimeter of the Marsa grounds on a non-traditional route, with mud pits and obstacles in the way.

Dillon Cassar (Mellieħa AC), continued to build on his impressive recent momentum, claiming victory when overcoming the brave challenge of Pembroke duo Luke Micallef and Muhammed Ahmed Khadar and Simon Spiteri, of St Patrick’s AC.

Lisa Bezzina ended her commitments in the local Athletics Malta calendar with another win, claiming the senior female title ahead of Pembroke’s Rachel Borg and newcomer Rosalie Borg.

Jean Claude Randon (Raptorz AC) took home the Under 23 title, while among the Under 20s Gabriel Farrugia (Evolve EC) edged David Borg (Athletix Gozo AC).

The event was supported by Garmin Malta and Eurosport.
