Summer Paralympics appearances

Malta competed at the 2008 Summer Paralympics in Beijing, China. This was the first time in twenty-four years that Malta competed in the games; the last time was at the 1984 Summer Paralympics. The country's delegation consisted of a single competitor, 18-year-old sprinter Antonio Flores. He was a member of Pembroke Athleta and trained under the club's coach, Jivko Jetchev. Flores left for Beijing on September 1.[1]


Flores entered only one event - the 100m sprint in the T44 category. He finished 5th out of 6 in his heat, and did not advance to the final.[2]
