Freddie Griscti: The hero of Malta

Freddie Griscti was the undisputed best ever player in the history of Maltese Water Polo. His career at the top spans more that 20 years where he won every major honour the game has to offer. He was a prolific goal scorer and an all rounder who had exceptional tactical acumen where he could read the game with great facility. He participated in the 1963 Mediterranean Games in Naples with the Water Polo team which also formed part of the Olympic Team in the same year; in 1975 the team participated in the Mediterranean Games in Algiers for which he was the captain. He was the National Swimming Champion in no less than 4 events for a number of years and in 1960 he represented Malta in the Rome Olympics in the 100m freestyle. He was winner of the national ‘Sportsman of the Year’ on two occasions.
