Jake Vella released from hospital and celebrates with a 1.5km swimming session

Jake Vella

All of Malta’s prayers have been answered after our favourite athlete Jake Vella was released from hospital!

Everyone got quite the scare when we heard the news, but the young athlete is back home and training like the absolute legend that he is!

Jake has ROHHAD, an extremely rare syndrome that causes children to gain weight and have breathing difficulties, together with other problems.

Jake is one of the few who have ROHHAD, however his strain of the condition is even rarer as he exhibits symptoms of ROHHAD NET.

You have all of Malta’s support, and we’re so happy to see you back at it Jake!
