Liv­ing in fast lane

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

TAYLEIGH Fry-Al­lan will have to get used to liv­ing life in the fast lane.

The su­per swim­mer be­came the 10-year-old 100m breast­stroke cham­pion at the Queens­land Pri­mary Schools State Cham­pi­onships.

Tayleigh swam a time of 1.34.07 to take out the event.

Usu­ally con­sid­ered the most tech­ni­cal stroke, Tayleigh loved glid­ing through the wa­ter.

I sort of saw the girl be­hind me when I turned so I knew I had to pick up my pace.

Coach Ros Ma­son said Tayleigh had a nat­u­ral abil­ity, which made swim­ming breast­stroke easy.

Ma­son said Tayleigh put in a lot of hard train­ing, five or six times a week, to make it to the com­pe­ti­tion.

Com­ing up against un­known op­po­nents, Tayleigh found the com­pe­ti­tion dif­fi­cult on the day.

“It was nerve-wrack­ing, but it was also just like a nor­mal race and you just have to stay fo­cussed,” she said.

“I sort of saw the girl be­hind me when I turned so I knew I had to pick up my pace.”

Tayleigh will head to Mel­bourne in July to com­pete with the Queens­land team in the Aus­tralian Pri­mary School Cham­pi­onships.

CHAM­PION: Tayleigh FryAl­lan is the 10-year-old Queens­land breast­stroke cham­pion.
