Hi Leigh, Finlay attended junior state LC champs this weekend and knocked off 1.67 in the 50 free & 4.15 in the 100 free. After the races I spoke to Fin and he said I did exactly as Leigh had taught me. We would just like to pass on are heart felt thanks to him and we are looking forward to his next visit to WA.
