Water Polo

Information

Water polo was developed in Europe and United States as two differing sports. Ultimately, the faster, less dangerous European style prevailed, and today this is the form of the game practised universally. It consists of seven-man teams playing four eight-minute periods. Water polo made its Olympic debut at the Paris Games in 1900. It was not included in 1904 but would be present at each subsequent edition of the Olympic Games. In Sydney 2000, women's water polo made its first official appearance at the Olympic Games, 100 years after the debut of this discipline.
