Karl Izzo, who served as Malta’s national waterpolo coach since 2013, has confirmed that he will submit his candidacy to become the new president of the Aquatic Sports Association.
During the past few weeks, Izzo has been approached by several local clubs who feel that a change in leadership is necessary to ensure Malta’s improvement in the field.
At a reception at the Hilton Hotel, Izzo presented his vision to a large crowd to outline his short and long term plans for the sector.
Ensuring everyone that he has the right portfolio to lead the association, he said that the focus will not be solely on waterpolo. After multiple talks with the aquatic sports sector clubs he was able to draft a number of proposals which were described as realistic by Izzo and other speakers at the presentation.
Popular speakers within the aquatic sector in Malta and beyond, such as Neil Agius, Dino Zammit, Matthew Zammit and others, endorsed Izzo as the right man for the job after experiencing his work first hand.
