After nine days of competion at the European Championships, Rossella Licciadello became a familiar face: the Malta Post worker comes everyday to the Dolmen Hotel around 11 a.m. to deliver the mail and walks «an average of 14 kms per day» on her own foot to get the job done properly without any truck, car or even a bike.

«I do it happily. it’s easy. We all, at Malta Post, gave our best to deliver the mail and to everybody», says the aged 25 Sicily born Rossella… not even aware that the European Snooker Championships were underway at the Dolmen Hotel.

«I’m a snooker fan myself, of course, sometimes I watch in TV.
