Healthy mind on a healthy body. And to keep fit and sharpness enough to handle with sometimes the long hours at the table, competitors exercise all the forms you can imagine. That’s the case of Lithuania’s Vilnius Schulte, keeping his sharpness and top form skipping at St. Paul’s Bay Dolmen Hotel, headquarters of the 2023 EBSA European Snooker Championships.
The aged 28 Lithuanian uses to do it everyday in order to avoid getting some weight and stay fresh during the physical and mental battles at the table with the others 176 competitors at Men’s championships. The image of Rocky Balboa before the fights in the famous movie came to our minds and the Lithuanian had doubled reasons to be happy: his cue finally arrived, after getting lost in the flight, and won his match.
In the day that seems that the summer got to Malta, the appeal also for a swim and from the pool convinced Welshman Riley Powell and Scotland’s Amaan Iqbal for a football match in one of the hotel’s outside pools: the break on the windy days is a chance to be taken once the best of 5 Frames round-robin matches are still underway and the 2023 european champion will be crowned only Saturday March 13th.
Also time to receive the support and tender from parents and relatives in a promenade to see the amazing Malta’s wonders: that was the case of Hungary’s Erik Nagy, delighted to – finally – can spend some free time away from the pression of the competition with his mother, Anasztázia.
