Collegiate Aussies Back in the Game

NCAA Gymnastics has kicked off for 2012, and Aussies were right there in the lineup.

At Oregon State, Olivia Vivian and Mel Jones (the latter now competing all-around for the first time at the school) helped the Beavers to victory over Oklahoma. Check out Olivia's new floor below. After an Iron Man routine in her second year, and a cheeky hat-tip to Burlesque last year... should we call this one Three Musketeers?

Meanwhile, over at Stanford, Victorian expat Shona Morgan also saw victory with her team, scoring a 9.725 on both bars and beam to help the Cardinals best three rival schools. She also scored a 9.500 on floor. (image courtesy Stanford Women's Gymnastics at Facebook)

In the hallowed halls of George Washington University, Monique Blount's team managed a commendable second overall at their season opener, despite being homeground hosts of the competition.

Heard that Mel Jones' floor was a real highlight this week -- has anyone seen any video?
