Robin Randall here from Team Canada Men's Water Polo Team. A lot has been happening since I last wrote you, and I'm excited to fill you in on the details...
June saw the squad travel to two cities in Montenegro en route to Florence, Italy, and the 2011 World League Super Finals. In Herceg Novi and Podgorica, Montenegro, Canada trained with that nation's team daily to prepare for Florence where they would square off against the top teams in the world.
In Florence, Canada managed to beat China in their final match, securing seventh place. In other matches the Canucks fell short to Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia and Australia in hard-fought battles outdoors, where temperatures exceeded 35 C daily.
Now the team finds themselves en route to the 14th FINA World Championships in Shanghai, China. Having trained with Montenegro again in Guangzhou (formerly Canton), the Canadians will face Croatia, Japan, and Brazil in the preliminary round before defending their best-ever eighth place ranking from the previous World Championship.
