Australian Men's Water Polo Team Photos
Australian Men's Water Polo: Hello, Ladies of London
As we get closer to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, we're starting to see more interest in athlete photos. The webwide urge to see Lolo Jones photos got us started earlier than normal.
We must first to the apotheosis of summer-games fitness: water polo, which is easily the most badass game you'll see at London 2012.
When commissioning a statue for the 1984 games, who did the Los Angeles Olympic Committee use as a model for the quintessential Olympian? That's right; water polo player Terry Schroeder.
Water polo team photos are about one thing, and one thing only: ripped guys in speedos. Deal with it.
However, the Australian water polo team got a bit artsy with its photos, which you can see below.
Pictured are six of Team Australia's squad for the London Games:
- Thomas Whalan
- Joel Dennerley (pictured without goalie cap)
- James Clark
- Aidan Roach
- Johnno Cotterill
- Richie Campbell
The team photos were shot at the Bondi Icebergs pool in the Sydney western suburbs. Not to be outdone, Team USA captain Tony Azevedo has a few photos of his own.
