July 29, 2012: 1st-Day Results from Men's Water Polo Prelims
The real Olympic action is underway in London: Water Polo.The first day of Men's Water Polo prelims was played on July 29, 2012 at Wembley Arena.
Group A and Group B saw action today; you can see the results from the completed matches below, as well as a link to the live scores. Also, check out photos from the first day of Water Polo competition. (Women's Water Polo competition begins on July 30.)
Men's Water Polo Group A Results:
- Croatia 8-6 Greece
- Spain 14-6 Kazakhstan
- Italy 8-5 Australia
Men's Water Polo Group B Results:
- Serbia 14-10 Hungary
- Romania 13-4 Great Britain
- USA 8-7 Montenegro
A strong statement by Serbia, and not an auspicious start for Hungary, which owns nearly half of all the Olympic Gold Medals in Water Polo history. Tony Azevedo's team USA, a contender for gold, edged past Montenegro, while hosts Great Britain got schooled by Romania.
USA will face Hungary on August 6: both are tipped to advance, so it's a matter of who will get inside of who's head for the rest of the tournament.
