Canada 6 - USA 5
Canada 8 - Australia 7
The USA is coming off a Silver medal performance from the last Olympics and Australia is very commonly a top 10 team in the world.
This is a great step for the Canadians considering that most of the team has probably not played any serious matches since the 2009 World Championships this past summer.
It is still very early in the Olympic cycle but this is a great start for the 2010 season.
What is up next for the Canadians?
I have no idea!
Maybe something will be posted at WaterPolo.ca. The most "recent" update for the men's team is the 2009 World Championships.
Come on people, GET WITH IT!
There are people out here who want to know what you are doing and want to support the efforts of the coaches, athletes and support staff. It is hard to do when we have no idea what is going on.
Please, Please, Please more updates!
It is really weird that I have to go to USA Water Polo or some foreign language web site to find out about the Canadian National Team!
In a match played before the Volvo Cup, Canada lost to Hungary.
Canada 5 - Hungary 20
The Hungarians National Team are always one if not the best in the world. This match just shows that Canada has a way to go to becoming a medal contender at a Worlds or Olympic level event.
If I understand correctly, Canada will be playing Hungary tonight for the final match of the Volvo Cup (Feb 26, 2010).
