Carla Scicluna misses out on qualification in 100m race
Malta’s athletes at the Commonwealth Games continued with their commitments following Monday’s exciting result where Katryna Esposito brought home a bronze medal.
On Monday evening, weightlifter Roberta Tabone, making her Commonwealth Games debut, competed in the 71kg category.
Tabone finished the competition with a personal best snatch at 86kg, followed by a strong clean and jerk of 105kg. Her 191kg total was a personal best.
Tabone finished in eighth place overall. The competition was won by England’s Sarah Davies who produced a Games record of 229kg. She was followed by Canada’s Alexis Ashworth and Harjinder Kaur of India.
Meanwhile on Tuesday afternoon sprinter Carla Scicluna was in action in the women’s 100m qualifying heats.
Competing in heat number four, Scicluna’s time of 11.89 seconds was not enough to get her through to the next round, though it was an improvement from her national championship time of 11.97. The heat was won by Nigeria’s Rosemary Chukwuma in 11.02 seconds.
