On the 16th and 17th of March, the Malta Judo Federation is hosting the 29th Malta International Judo Open at the Bocci Drome. 

Saturday's program is expected to start at 12:00hrs, which will include the Malta International Judo Open. Our National Team will be competing against Judoka from 7 other countries. The level this year is expected to be very high, since athletes who won medals at European Championships and World Cups will be contesting the event. Some of these include Marco Maddaloni - twice U23 European Champion and brother of Olympic Champion Pino Maddaloni, accompanied by the internationally acclaimed coach and father Gainni Maddaloni; and Giovanni Carollo - Silver medallist at the Cadet European Championships and Silver at the World Military Games.

Sunday's program will start at 10:00hrs. For this event, the Malta Judo Federation invited Olympian and European Medallist Paolo Bianchessi to participate in the Malta Promotional Cup with the youngest Judoka. The program will continue with competitions for the Espoir and Cadet categories.
