Maltese Masters athletes proved that age is just a number with a remarkable performance at the World Masters Championships as Antonella Chouhal took bronze in Torun, Poland.
Over 4000 athletes took part in the ninth edition which keeps growing in stature year after year as many experienced athletes continue to register strong results beyond the traditional sporting age peak.
With a superb performance, Neil Brimmer established a new indoor record in the 800m over 35 male category, with a 2:02.07 timing, ahead of experienced athletes from Spain, the UK, Norway, Portugal and the Czech Republic among others.
David Bezzina improved his two new national benchmarks in the 400m (58:12) and 800m (2:16.84) in the over 40 category.
On the field, Chouhal followed up on her achievements at the recent European Championships bringing home an impressive bronze medal in the hammer throw, with adverse weather conditions affecting this particular competition.
She also placed sixth in the weight throw.
Harder luck for Rachid Chouhal, who was unfortunate to miss out on a medal in the long jump despite a 6.30m jump, finishing in equal third place, but was dropped to fourth place on countback.
Rachid Chouhal also made it to the final of the 60m sprint where he placed sixth with a creditable finishing time of 7.37s.
