Tweets of the Week: MightyBridie, double trouble and legends

It’s that time of the week – we have tweets coming out of our ears! We’re seeing double down in Argentina, legends down under, some suspect kit and much more. But first, let us celebrate one magnificent woman’s achievement …


Bridie O’Donnell took to the boards for her attempt at the women’s world hour record last week. She had spent a year preparing for this. It was her Hour of Power.

By the end of the hour, she had herself a world record. And a lot of congratulatory tweets! She’s probably still going through them!

One of the highlights of the Tour Down Under week is the Legends Dinner. I’m loving Robbie McEwen‘s retro-50s look. Sunday, Monday, Happy Days …

Of course, the Jensie was doing what he does best – schmoozing!

Get that boy’s name – we’ll see him back on Willunga Hill in about 15 years …

When I first saw this picture, I thought he was in the supermarket picking up some vodka. I’m still not sure that’s not what this picture is…

Julia is asking what a lot of us are thinking – where is the ladies favourite? On the ice, apparently.

I’ll leave you with this final picture. I’m stunned – not only by what Pippo is wearing, but that he’s actually in a picture where he *is* wearing something.
