AOC: Thanks to the four Aussie champions who participated in the #CountdowntoSochi Google Hangout on October 3. What great talent!

Fresh off qualifying Australian Olympic quota places in Figure Skating, ice dancers Danielle O'Brien and Greg Merriman will join World No. 2 Men's Aerial Skier Dave Morris and Winter Youth Olympic Games Australian Flagbearer Greta Small chatted online.  

In a demonstration of how far and wide Australians are training and preparing for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, O'Brien and Merriman joined the Google Hangout on Air from their training base in Detroit, USA at 2am; with Small online from her hub in Austria; and the event hosted from AOC Headquarters in Sydney. Morris was at his home in Melbourne just 48 hours after returning from his training block in Park City, Utah.

More videos and hangouts with Olympic hopefuls coming soon.
