Coach Matti Liimatainen rejoiced at the opening of Huntington's season.
- The start was not special, but the run was sharp.
Rene extension is no funnier.
The smoothie didn't go very badly either, even though the time was 7.70, Liimatainen talked on the website of the Finnish Sports Federation.
- Based on tests, the speed has gone in the right direction.
It may not be directly visible when you have to start from a gun bang, 23-year-old Huntington noted.
