Well done to the amazing Jenise Spiteri!
Jenise Spiteri, a Maltese snowboarder, made her Olympic debut at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, competing in the women’s halfpipe qualifiers at the Yunding Snow Park in Zhangjiakou City.
Practising such a sport is not easy for obvious reasons. Malta, unfortunately, does not permit snow so anyone who practices such sport needs to go abroad. This did not discourage Jenise as she still gave her all in the Winter Olympics in Beijing!
The Olympic snowboarder Jenise Spiteri is on a mission to introduce her island nation to winter sports.
Spiteri, who was born in California but has Maltese ancestors, is the lone athlete from Malta competing in the Chinese capital.
Her YouTube channel has over 30,000 subscribers, and she claimed Wednesday that she has been up until “four or five a.m. virtually every night” updating fans on her Olympic trip.
