wow! kinda surprised that she’s never swam it at a serious college meet, outside of the medley relay
I decided to get Shake Shack at the last minute today. So I guess both Louise and I had big days today.
I love the Swedish-British-American accent mix haha
I get why all three, but they combined to sound very Australian to me
I can hear it too. Sounds very obviously Australian at some points but then not so much.
Came to say the same thing, sounds Australian with hint on European at times. Even the rhythm is very Australian.
