As usual the biggest crapshoot that is the water polo prediction contest. It will be a miracle if I don't finish last. Any chance of a 30+ goal difference games? :p

The Colombian and Thai women's teams won't be super competitive

It's Greece vs USA in the final, we already beat them 15-14 in the group stage. Whoever wins will be the first country to ever win this tournament twice (we won the inaugural tournament in 2012).

Now it's the Men's Youth World Championships. Unfortunately our boys lost 9-8 to Spain today in the quarterfinals. The referees were tragic I must say...

 

The big surprise is that :NED won 12-7 against :MNE to make the semifinals :yikes:

I always wondered why the Dutch men were not a top team in water polo while their women are, maybe this new generation is really good though?! We beat them only 12-11 in the group stage. I was surprised it was so close but I guess the Dutch really are good :yes

Well, I was wondering that too. I asked a friend from the waterpolo community in the Netherlands and he told me it's way too early to say there is a really good new generation. But he also said there are more talents than in average years. So we have to wait. but there is a little hope for Dutch men's waterpolo :-).

We tend to have better national teams on the womens side than the mens side in most team sports: waterpolo, volleyball, handball and field hockey. I guess one factor is also in the general sense a larger share of the boys athletic talent is concentrated in football.
