The Being 2022 Winter Olympics are fast-approaching, and this year Malta’s sending its very own athletes to compete!

29-year-old Maltese-American Jenise Spiteri is set to make the country proud by competing in the snowboarding category.

“I got the crazy dream to try and go to the Olympics at 20,” Jenise wrote on social media.

“I competed in my first pro halfpipe event at 22. I came one spot away from making it to the 2018 Olympics at 25. And now at 29, I’ve earned entry to the 2022 Olympics”, she continued.

The Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games will be taking place from 4th to 20th February.

Wishing you the best of luck, Jenise and Shannon!
