Thanks for picking up my article and for giving it a wider reader base! What you say obviously makes sense yet, as everything, it isn't that easy. How do you convince any 2:11 runners to come to Malta unless you're willing to pay them? Which, given that all local athletes do this for a hobby, is going to be hard. Quite simply there isn't the money to do so.

More than that, the biggest problem is that of identifying talent. Kids prefer football (soccer) and it is hard to convince them to try other sports. It is the same problem that is found everywhere but, given the small population, it hits harder over here.

Anyway, feel free to visit my blog for more info on Maltese athletics
