Express Trailers supports David Galea’s participation in Kona 2016 in Hawaii
This weekend, Maltese Triathlete David Galea will be flying Malta’s flag as he competes in one of the most gruelling Ironman competitions, KONA 2016 in Hawaii. Athletes from all over the world compete in various qualifying events to be able to enter this competition but only 2% of them manage to qualify.
The Ironman in Kona will be held today and forms part of the Ironman World Championship.
“Qualifying for a competition like Kona 2016 is already an achievement in itself and this is why Express Trailers has agreed to sponsor David Galea’s trip to Hawaii by supporting the logistics involved in getting him and his equpment all the way to Kona,” comments Franco Azzopardi, Chairman and CEO of Express Trailers.
“At Express Trailers, endurance is a recurring theme as we constantly strive and manage to meet the high standards we have reached in our delivery and logistics field. We are strong players in the industry but nonetheless, stamina is important to retain the levels of service that secures the business.
“Our employees play an important role in securing this business and this is why we want them to look at athletes like David Galea as an inspiration to them in their journey of self-development. We do not just expect them to deliver. We wish for them to become better persons because better and stronger persons lead to a better and stronger company.”
Earlier this year, Express Trailers confirmed its support to a number of clubs in Malta related to road running and cycling, two disciplines that also form part of the Ironman challenge.
“Our company’s operations are mainly based on road transport. This makes us very sensitive to the fact that people may perceive us to be a bit of a disruption on the roads. There are other more vulnerable road users namely runners and cyclists on Malta’s roads.
“Therefore, sponsoring another athlete who for the past months has been training on our roads, is part of Express Trailers’ attempt to redress the balance,” concluded Franco Azzopardi.
