The Age's weekly instalments on Ashleigh Brennan and Matthew Targett are continuing with a sweet photo of Ash, sitting pretty alongside her coaches Mischa and Tracey, printed today. Mischa's simple and calming advice sounds like that which he whispered to Monette Russo as she prepared for floor on the way to her historic 2005 World Championships medal. Let's hope Ms Brennan goes on to similar success.
On the back of the Sports page is a little piece about Steve Waugh's visit to the AIS and the gym team, complete with a small digitally-altered photo of Ash (on the Melbourne Commonwealth Games podium) decked out in leotard a jauntily-positioned baggy green. Stylish, no?
