Basketball: Australian Boomers Open Training Session, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

Last week I attended an open training session for the Australian Men’s Basketball Team , “The Boomers”. Their immediate goal was to prepare for the Borislav Stankovic Cup, in Haining & Guanghou, China, the following week. (The Boomers went on to beat all teams, including Angola and China in the round matches, before losing to Angola in the final.) Here are some photos from the training session:
