In order to provide the best possible environment for our Team Malta athletes to reach their maximum potential and succeed in their respective sports, the Maltese Olympic Committee will be increasing the Sports Scientist positions.
For the last 28 years the MOC Functional Diagnostics Lab (FDL) has played a crucial role in providing sports scientific support for top athletes. Initially staffed with a team of scientists and lab technicians, over the last 10 years Dr. Olga Fedotkina Galea has been solely serving the athletes representing our country at both national and international competitions. The FDL has recently undergone an equipment upgrade, and additional sport services such as sport psychology, sport nutrition and strength & conditioning have been added to support our athletes in the best possible way.
In addition to the standard services of FDL testing, the lab also offers liaising with coaches and/or technical directors to plan and enhance the training strategy. We want to extend our assistance to begin offering Elite Support Services to all our top athletes.
The goal is to have multi-disciplinary sport training that provides the necessary support for our elite athletes before the GSSE 2023 .
