Chaylon and Jake Castaldi win the Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month Award for October
Chaylon and Jake Castaldi have been awarded the Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month Award for the month of October 2022.
Brothers Chaylon and Jake Castaldi, ages 14 and 12, respectively, participated in the Under 15 Category in this year’s Blackball World Championships in Albi, France. This category was made up of 15 doubles teams from 7 different countries, with France having 5 teams. The Castaldi brothers were declared Under-15 World Champions after seeing off French duo Bidault and Leuneau 3-0. The Maltese duo dominated the encounter to clinch the most important win.
The trophy for the October 2022 Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month, together with the sports apparel voucher, were presented to Chaylon and Jake Castaldi by Robert Micallef, Chief Commercial Officer and Matthew von Brockdorff Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Atlas Insurance. The Malta Sports Journalists Association was represented by Administrator Stephen Azzopardi.
This award is a joint initiative of the Malta Sports Journalists Association and Atlas Insurance. The adjudicating panel of this award takes note of all the youths’ achievements during the month under review and invites local sports associations and federations to send their nominations for consideration if they feel that any of their under-21 athletes have distinguished themselves during that month.
