NHL.com lists 5 players with the first name Justin. Our guy really doesn't look like any of them. Justin Braun of the San Jose Sharks and Justin Falk of Minnesota look closest to me. Especially Falk when I see him with a beard.

Well, Justin Falk has tweets in his Twitter account on Nov. 13 and 16.

OK, that rules him out then.

I believe we have our first professional hockey players on the race.
Give a big RFF welcome to Bates (Jonathan) and Anthony Battaglia - brothers from Chicago.

Bates was a journeyman player - most notably played for the Carolina Hurricanes and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Last season he played with the  Karlskrona Hockey club in Sweden.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bates_Battaglia

Anthony never played in the NHL, has spent many seasons in the East Coast Hockey League and Central Hockey League - most recently with the Tulsa Oilers.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Battaglia

Bates owns a bar in Raleigh SC called Lucky B's. I think Anthony has recently moved to SC and is considering pursuing a career as a firefighter.

All credit for this to Chateau for his insightful investigation and start line photos.

So, according to our Melbourne spotter, these two are Hockey Players:


I heard the shaven one call out 'Justin' as they exited the arrivals gate I believe. Just a tid bit of info to add

Probably Jonathan - not Justin.

Good work, Chateau! I was just thinking NHL players were unlikely even though there's no apparent end to the current NHL labor dispute.

There's a minor league hockey team (AHL) called the Syracuse Crunch. Looking into it...

ETA: Bates Battaglia played 29 games for the Syracuse Crunch in the 2009-2010 season. Is he the one wearing the Crunch shirt?

Kiwi,wonderful set of video clips! I don't believe I've ever seen such clear video footage of how the camera-sound crew is in motion behind a team moving this way, then thataway.

(Good teaching video for future TAR detectives worldwide! :) )

Nice work Peach!

4. Team Red F/F (notice the names and number on their tops, obviously cast because of a specific sporting background - roller derby anyone?)

Freaky coincidence or am I just an amazing guesser..?  :lol:

Nice work Peach!  :yess:

Oh wow, we've got two sets of athletes now,  :colors


Ok, I might be forget to say this (or else already stated somewhere in here, i'm sorry) but while I met the Son from Utah Father/Son team, I sit close by them in the waiting room, just wanted to get their insight up close, and when the Father went to the toilet, the Son was playing around with his wheelchair, now I'm not talking about playing around like what a normal kids do, instead he was doing somekind of tricks and manuever with the wheelchair..!  :o.  I was like.. WHAaattt??! And he fell to the ground after several tricks.. And the camera and sound guy laughed so hard (me too, but i was kinda holding it pfffpfpfff  :snics: )

i don't know if the above information could give a little hint, maybe he's a former BMX bicycle or Skater boy, :duno:  , but he does have kinda skater's style (he wear skater's cap)
