SYDNEY, Australia, February 13. THE Australian national swim team celebrated a relatively successful 2013 at the Swimmer of the Year Awards recently in Perth, and showed how much fun they have together with a special video set to the popular song “Happy.”

Several swimmers visited Brett Frawley’s special set during the event and seemed to have plenty of room to improvise. Most of the athletes did their best re-creations of New Year’s Eve celebrations with plenty of confetti, goofy eyewear and Silly String.

James Magnussen went solo, doing his “Vogue” impression for the camera, while newlyweds Christian Sprenger and Amelia Evatt-Davey seemed to audition for a remake of “The Notebook.”
