With the Olympics only days away, Telstra’s Hero Gram Service is again up and running and as always Aussies have flooded the service with well wishes for our athletes.
One well wisher said to diving champion Melissa Wu, “You are my idol, you can beat anyone else at Beijing and I wanted to wish you luck. You rule!
Another Hero Gram written by the Grace family dedicated to Grant Hackett simply said, “Go Grant you can do it, you know you can, we know you can!”
