FINA competitions


Recommended Posts

I would love to start a new topic about the Greek national water polo team and it's upcoming FINA competitions. After what Greece did in the Tokyo Olympic games, I am starting to get involved in this sport more often.

The next LEN European Championship will be held in Split, Croatia on August 27 thru September 10. This is where Greece can try to claim it's first ever medals at these games.

Our water polo team always had a presence in the Olympics. Our only team sport that would represent us in the Olympics on regular basis all these years. No other national team can claim that.

We do have very competitive teams both in men and women, and I see success for both teams in the future.
