Maltese boxer Gail Diacono has qualified for the IBA Under 22 European Championship Finals after beating her opponent from Armenia, Song Harutynyan.
Competing at the European Boxing Confederation Championships in Montenegro, Gail will now be facing a Russian opponent on Sunday 19th.
The EUBC is Europe’s governing body when it comes to amateur boxing, and Gail has just secured a silver medal for herself and ‘my Malta’. However, Gail’s sights are still on gold.
Gail thanked her coach Roland Sammut for all ‘his patience to get to this point. I would also like to thank head coach Gabriele Martelli for his support and all those who supported me.’
