Tennis player Francesca Curmi and swimmer Sasha Gatt were presented with their respective Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month awards, following their international sporting commitments. Nineteen-year-old Francesca Curmi had been declared the winner of the Atlas Youth Athlete of the Month for the month of February. This was mainly due to her stellar performance during the ITF Tournament held in Monastir, Tunisia, when, against all odds and facing better seeded opponents, she achieved six straight victories to reach the final played on Sunday 28th February. Francesca became the first ever Maltese tennis player to reach the final of a ‘Futures’ event. Unfortunately, she was beaten by her Polish opponent in the final. Sixteen-year-old Sasha Gatt was chosen as the winner of the June award following her outstanding results in the 400m freestyle, where she stopped the clock at 4:18.58, over five seconds faster than the 4:23.33 mark she established in February.

The Malta Fair Play Movement announced the second TGS Malta Fair Play Award in conjunction with the Malta Sports Journalists Association and sponsored by Together Gaming Solutions (Bethard Group Ltd.). Local Paralympic athlete Antonio Flores has been awarded this second award covering the April-June 2021 period.
