Living in fast lane
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.
