Australian Sex Appeal

ATLANTA () -- The Australian women's Olympic basketball team is using a little sex appeal to attract the fans.

The Aussies are wearing skintight body suits, an eye-catching contrast to the baggy long shorts and shirts most basketball teams -- men and women -- wear these days.

"The Australian team wanted to try it as a way to get people to come and watch us play," guard Sandy Brondello explained. "We thought that once they came to see us play, they would see that we play good basketball and that the game can be exciting."
