We spoke about how some students are particularly good at picking up new information, and Martin spoke about how Sally Fitzgibbons is particularly good a learning new skills. View this post on Instagram Sally always looks happy, even after long flights across the Pacific last night. Great to see her with the yellow jersey in the world title race, now ranked no. 1. That smile will only gets bigger if she maintains for the rest of the year. Good luck Sal.
