However, they are not the only national team in the US that absolutely crushes competition.
Take note, if you wish, of the US national water ball team that beat Spain at the FINA World Cup on Friday in Guangzhou, South Korea, with a score of 11-6. (FINA is the International Federation of Nations or the International Swimming Federation.) With this victory they sealed their third victory in the world championship – a feat that no other national water polo team, male or female, has achieved.
Do you think this is domination? There are also: They have won 53 consecutive games and will watch their third straight gold medal at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo next year. In fact, they are the only team to win a medal in any Olympic water polo event, as the female water ball became an Olympic sport in 2000.
Oh, they also won three straight World Cups.
After the women's historic victory, Adam Krikoriyan coach stated that players hear people mentioning them
in the same perspective as the women's national football team and the women's national basketball team, both dominating in the sports. And they take this comparison very seriously.
" We are very proud, we want to show people what we can do as a team, as a program as a collective staff, "he said. "And we feel that we are also a spokesperson for the sport of the polo polo … There is a bigger goal than just selfish glory." It is inspiring to continue this move and hope we can move on.
If you're willing to expand your sporting view of the world's water polo, there's no need to wait for Tokyo 2020 to do it. The USWNT (water ball edition) targets the Panama Games in 2019 in Lima, Peru next month.
