US Women's water polo team completely kicked ass in the gold medal game, stomping Italy 12-5.

I've never played water polo but it strikes me as an incredibly physically demanding game. Swimming laps and treading water continuously for an hour while an opponent continuously tries to grab you and pull you under water.

It is a full-body challenge. I loved it.

As a younger player, I got schooled once by a vet. I was working really hard to cut off her offensive angle to the ball. She let me, and I thought I'd won the battle only to have her slip her arm in the racer back straps of my suit. She proceeded to play the possession with me helplessly attached with my back to her shoulder. Laughing
