Group Hugs

It's less than a week until Australia Day!

Here is a sweet little article on the Aussies and Canadians who help make up the Oregon State gymnastics team.

The Australians are fun-loving and outgoing. They are a source of comedy and lighten the mood during tense training sessions.

U.S. teammates love to mimic their accents, just as much as the Australians loved to spoof the Valley Girl accent.

"I found they found me as a bit of a novelty at first," Vivian said. "They repeated me, trying to say the funny words we say. So I was able prepare them for Mel."
