Please note that drugs carried into China by participating teams should be used by their own members only. After the 14th FINA World Championships, the remaining drugs should be taken back to their countries and should not be sold in China.

Super Final 2011 (Men): Serbia wins its 6th title, silver and bronze for Italy and Croatia respectively
FLORENCE, Italy (June 26) - With one minute missing to the end of the game China missed a great opportunity to tie with the ball dancing on the line before Canada’s goalkeeper finally grabbed it safely.

For China the rendezvous with victory was once more procrastined, perhaps to the World Championships, next month in Shanghai, where they will play at home. Progressive score: 2-3, 4-5, 7-9, 9-10.
