Relay Day

Traditionally the relay is held on the last day of competition but not this year! In the absence of an Aussie Mens team, we decided to choose another country to back. This decision was not made lightly. After much deliberation and plenty of debate (ok it was an easy decision) we decided to choose the Swiss. Switzerland has amazing scenery, awesome chocolate and ice cream as well as spiky chestnuts. And aren't we glad we did! They won (after the first 4 teams stopped due to an injured swede).

Congratulations boys!

We are so proud of you guys

Why do you look shocked that your team mates are taking sneaky photos?

Great work team!

After the adulation of the Swiss boys taking gold, it was time to focus on the Aussie girls team. Another top 10 performance!! Well done girls :-)
