ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Australia’s Olympic athletes take over tropical city of Cairns ahead of Tokyo Games | ABC News” – below is their description.

Australia’s top athletes have taken over the tropical city of Cairns as the Olympic and Paralympic pre-departure training camp due to its climate being similar to the Japanese capital at this time of year.

The Australian swim team has commandeered the local pool, while the track and field team has been doing hot laps of the town’s athletics track.

But it has not been all work and no play.

Australian Olympic swimmer Cate Campbell has been busy posting pictures of herself and other members of the swim team on their day off in Cairns.

“What do a bunch of swimmers do on their day off?” she wrote.

“Find the local water hole of course.”
