Continuing our journey to the discovery of the athletes of the #ProgettoGiovani# duemila20e24, and we move from Chiari to Malles, another hotbed of young talents, which in recent years has churned out Italian champions such as Lukas Osele, Kevin Strobl and Judith Mair. And just the very young South Tyrolean ASV Malles athlete Judith Mair (13/09/2002) has chosen this year to join the Federal Project now in its sixth edition.
