Unconventional Opals Training

Funny report from Australia, where Lauren Jackson and her Opals teammates are going through boot camp - literally. Head Coach Jan Stirling took her charges to the Australian Defence Force Canungra base to go through exercises designed for team-building.

"This is the start of building the unity, strength and courage of the team - there's no better environment to do that than here," Stirling told The Australian.

The players seem to be enjoying it, looking at a photo gallery that features Jackson in fatigues.

Good to see LJ and the Aussie team getting their team mechanics in order well before the Games...... What are Team USA doing? Brawling on the courts earning themselves suspension? So much for Team harmony.
