Australian athletes hold 'faux-pening' Olympic ceremony in Florida
By: Associated Press
As the Olympic opening ceremony began, Australian track and field athletes took to social media around the same time for a celebration of their own.
The track and field team members are in Florida for last-minute preparations and did not attend the ceremonies since their events don’t start until much later in the Olympics. Wearing matching suits, team members took a series of selfies at a track to show their solidarity with their counterparts in Brazil.
Australia has brought a large contingent of athletes to Rio and has long been a power in swimming events.
