Water Polo World Championships

This evening, a small group of students and faculty attended the prelims of the 2013 FINA World Championships of Men’s Water Polo, held at the 1992 Summer Olympic facilities on Montjuïc. Students were enthralled by the Croatia vs. South Africa game before the USA took on Canada in an exciting match that ended with the Americans winning 8 to 7. Afterwards, while some students stayed to watch the host Spaniards take on the Greeks, others were lucky enough to run into the U.S. Women’s team, with whom they were able to chat and take a photo. Even though only a few students had ever actually seen a water polo game before, everyone who attended was a fan of the sport by the final buzzer.
