If you encountered a group of hunky Australians around Park City or Salt Lake City before Christmas, it wasn't your imagination.

Members of the Collingwood Magpies, a team in the Australian Football League, were conducting a two-week high-altitude training camp in Utah earlier this month.

The team members conducted drills at the University of Utah football team's facilities, and did some obstacle-course work at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City.

It wasn't all work, though. The team got to check out the bobsleds in Park City, and attended a Utah Jazz game.

The Magpies kick off the 2013 season in March.
