Malta Men’s U16 Water Polo Team has been awarded the Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month Award for the month of August 2022. This is the third time that the award has been given to a team instead of an individual athlete. The Maltese youngsters made history with their first participation in the World Championships in Volos, Greece. They stunned the more-quoted United States side 10-7 in the opener and sealed top spot in the group with a 13-3 hammering of Kazakhstan. They bounced back from their 13-8 defeat to Turkey with an 8-6 win against the Egyptians and moved into the semi-finals of the Gold Group, where they re-matched against the United States. Even though they lost 10-7 against the United States, they settled for fourth place in the Gold Group after losing 9-7 to Brazil.

L-unur tal-Atlas Atleta Żagħżugħ tax-Xahar għal Awwissu mar għand it-tim nazzjonali ta’ taħt is-16-il sena tal-Water Polo. Din hija t-tielet darba li dan il-premju qed jingħata lil tim minflok atleta individwali. Iż-żgħażagħ Maltin naqqxu isimhom fl-Istorja bl-ewwel parteċipazzjoni tagħhom fil-Kampjonat Dinji li sar f’Volos fil-Greċja. Huma impressjonaw mhux ftit, meta għelbu lit-tim aktar kwotat tal-Istati Uniti fil-logħba inawgurali bl-iskor ta’ 10-7 u rebħu l-grupp wara li ġabu fix-xejn lill-Każakistan 13-3. Huma ġew minn telfa ta’ 13-8 kontra t-Turkija, meta għelbu lill-Eġittu 8-6 u għaddew għas-semifinali tal-Gold Group, fejn kellhom jerġgħu jaffrontaw lill-Istati Uniti. Minkejja li din id-darba l-Maltin tilfu 10-7, assiguraw ir-raba’ post fil-Gold Group wara li tilfu 9-7 kontra l-Brażil. Xorta waħda dawn ir-riżultati miksuba huma ferm pożittivi u b’hekk il-Maltin temmew dawn l-impenji fit-12-il post fost il-25 pajjiż li ħa sehem minn madwar id-dinja. It-trofew tal-Atlas Atleta Żagħżugħ tax-Xahar għal Awwissu flimkien ma’ tifkira tal-okkażjoni ġew preżentati lill-plejers [...]
