The presentation was held at the Neptunes Waterpolo Club and it results that the last waterpolo player chosen as ‘Athlete of the Year’ goes back to 1973 when the title was won by Michael Soler. Other waterpolo players who won the award were Alfred Griscti in 1965 and 1972, George Borg in 1967 and Bertie Portelli in 1969.
