The US Ambassador to Australia, Caroline Kennedy, showed off amazing athletic skills while training with the Brisbane Broncos during her recent trip to Queensland.
Mrs. Kennedy, daughter of former US President John F. Kennedy, landed in the Sunshine State over the weekend and witnessed the Broncos dethrone the Titans at a sold-out Cbus Super Stadium.
On Tuesday, Mrs. Kennedy attended a training session with the Broncos and the 65-year-old showed impressive tackling, kicking and passing skills for the first time.
The next day, the US Embassy in Australia posted a letter of thanks to the club along with a video of the activities in which they participated.
NRL education continues! Ambassador Kennedy is now impressed. Thank you @brisbanebroncosthe and anikawells for sport for the training session,’ the post said.

“Great for meeting the players and club leadership, learning more about women’s rugby league and the Brisbane Broncos, and chatting to students from the club’s First Nations school mentorship programme,” read a follow-up post from the account.
Club response: You are welcome anytime. Definitely see some potential!
And they weren’t the only ones commenting on her athletic ability. Lots of fans have taken note, too.
“Credit for giving this treatment a fair blow,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Well done with the intervention, Ambassador!” said another.
A third answered, “It’s very real and beautiful.”
Mrs. Kennedy will be sworn in as US Ambassador to Australia in 2022 after being nominated by President Joe Biden.
The trip to Queensland was Mrs. Kennedy’s first visit to the state since taking up her diplomatic posting in Australia.

The Washington woman in Canberra embraced SummerNuts as a natural, recognized entrants at the Dirty Mullet Festival and starred in the Burnout Championship.
Photos and videos posted on the US Embassy’s official page show her laughing and smiling while excitedly filming a Hotrod smoking it on the tarmac.
The normally elegant diplomat even sketched out the dress code, posing in a long-sleeved black T-shirt, jeans, and happily donning a SummerNuts hat while waving a ‘hold up’ hand sign in photos with the motorsports fan.
