BA Juggling

Team Aus is getting into the Village vibes - which means when they're not training they're enjoying entertainment like acrobats and jugglers. Discus thrower Sally Shockry said she was surprised by the range of activities.  

"It’s great because you get to fill in your day with more than just sport. 

“I learnt how to juggle in the circus activity yesterday. I’m still not 100% there, but they’re here every day so I’m going to go back and practice.” 

Archery

Archer Jason Hurnall has his eye on the prize.

Benjamin Gould 

Table tennis athlete Ben Gould trains with his coach in preparation for competition.

Giselle Stogdale

Men's beach volleyballers Mark Nicolaidis and James Takken hit it out at Green Park.

Training sessions continue on the final day before the Opening Ceremony. Plus Team Aus will be officially welcomed to the Games at the Welcome Ceremony in the Village and members of the Australian Team have been invited to a function at the Australia Embassy in Buenos Aires.
