Hi Liam, I just wanted to say that I am doing you for an Olympic project at school because I think you are an amazing athlete. Good job in the men's final, I was cheering you on! I can't believe you can do that because if I tried I would probably faint. Good luck in the future and keep on trying your best and doing Australia proud!!!
