Meet teamTBB Youngest Member: Zali
Well the youngest member of teamTBB, Zali Sutton, kicked off her new career dominating in her first ever competitive tennis match.
We all fear school holidays as Zali comes to track and while we do massive sets she joins in with 200 m to go and annoys us all by outsprinting us to the end. And believe me we aren't letting her win.
It would seem Old Doc is yet again diversifying his skill set and now becoming a tennis coach. Doc said that Zali wanted to play and "I had a look around at what the best tennis coaches were doing when my little girl said to me 'Papa I'd like to play tennis'. I wasn't over impressed most of the Tennis coaches looked like they coached because they want to take their shirt off in the sun. I thought I'll keep mine on and do it myself. "
Not a lot of little girls play Tennis in the little Swiss mountain town of Leysin. So Zali is a member of the Leysin 10 and under boys team. We know Zali has chicked quite a few boys already in skiing and running, but now she has added the tennis court. With the 6-2, 6-0 win in her first singles match, Zali looks like chicking the boys in Tennis will soon be a regular occurence.
When we asked Coach for his take on the big win, he said, "it's a start." Good to know our Coach may be changing sports but not his disposition.
Well done Zali from all your training partners at teamTBB! We look forward to racing you on the track all summer long!
