Ahh Australia, the 6 th largest country in the world, home of 10 of the worlds 15 most
poisonous snakes, land of the most beautiful beaches and the home of the always sunburnt.
But we are not here to talk about our great and bold country, we’re here to talk about us!
The DownUnder Thunder!
Let kick it off with introducing, Michael! The tallest and wisest of the group. He studies a
Bachelor of Engineering and works for an engineering company writing code. On his days off
you will most likely catch Michael doing adrenaline pumping parkour around the Brisbane
Next off is Will, the fighter. There best not be a man overseas that doesn’t except his
Redbull. He studies a Bachelor of Business and Commerce and works as a waiter. Every night
you can catch Will punching, kicking and choking people at the MMA gym.
Now presenting Dion, the man that formed the DownUnder Thunder, the man that without
he there would be no us. He studies a Bachelor of Arts, majoring and minoring in
Anthropology and Philosophy. He works as a pool boy, and in his spare time you will see him
alongside Michael, jumping between buildings and doing stunts around the Brisbane CBD.
G'day I'm Dion
I'm a student at the University of Queensland studying anthropology and philosophy.
I like to push my boundaries and love training Parkour, Canoe Polo or anything else outdoors.
I enjoy a little touch of chaos from time to time, whether it be trying to hike Norway in shorts and a shirt when it's snowing...
Getting interrogated by customs because I forget to show the right passport...
Or losing my bag in central Europe...
You're probably thinking that sounds more like stupidity. But that doesn't sound as cool. Either way, I enjoy getting through those kinds of experiences and hope that will help out a bit on this adventure.
You can expect The DownUnderThunder to engage in all kinds of 'interesting' activities while we do this challenge, so make sure you follow us before we totally cark it.
Tall, pale, and a solid "eh"/10. Currently studying engineering at QUT, I enjoy building things and jumping over stuff.
Well hi-dilly-ho, neighborinos!
I study Business/Commerce at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
Honestly I just hope the main prize is a sloth.
If I got a sloth I would teach it in the ways of MMA. I'm a huge MMA fan and train in every aspect of the sport.
Not much else to know about me, my favourite food are burritos and 70% dark chocolate. So if I can't get either of them using Redbull cans I'm probably going to die overseas.
