The return of the World League

Preliminary action of the FINA Water Polo World League 2009 will already begin next month! Here’s an introduction to the way the competition will unfold:In the men’s field of the European division, three groups of four national teams begin squaring-off as early as mid-January. In a change of qualification procedure from 2008 League play, the men’s European teams will not play-off in tournaments, but through a series of six individual home or away matches scheduled over five months. Every one of the twelve teams will face an opposing team from their group in games scheduled on January 21, February 17, March 10, April 14, May 5 and May 12. Four teams from Europe - including the team from the host nation - will advance to the eight-team Super Final, which will be held from June 16-21 in Montenegro.

WORLD TROPHY Day 3: ?Cats? of Spain better than Chinese ?swans?

Spain has confirmed its victory in the 3rd FINA Synchronised Swimming World Trophy, held in Madrid (ESP) from December 5-7, 2008. On the third and final day of competition, the Spanish swimmers won the free combination event, getting 99.000 from the judges including a perfect 10 for their presentation based on the theme ‘Cats’. Wearing a special cap with two ‘ears’, their faces painted with cat characteristics and wearing a swimsuit that covered one leg of the competitors, the Spaniards finished the World Trophy with a fourth triumph out of four events (Duet Free, Duet Thematic, Team Free and Free Combination). In the overall ranking, the Iberians totalled 396.666 (out of a theoretical 400.000) and proved they have the conditions to be, in 2009, number 1 in this discipline.

WORLD TROPHY Day 2: Spain more ?brilliant? than ever

Spain confirmed its favouritism for the final victory, at home, in the 3rd FINA Synchronised Swimming World Trophy, organised in Madrid from December 5-7. In the team free event, the Spaniards displayed the successful routine – “Africa” – that led them to the silver medal at both the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2007 FINA World Championships in Melbourne (AUS). But this time, the Iberians were literally more ‘shiny’ than ever: they have incorporated lights in their swimsuit, enhancing the spectacular character of their presentation. In a scheme that is now well assimilated by the Spanish athletes (this time, their icon Gemma Mengual did not swim), they got three perfect 10 from the judges and finished with a total of 99.666. With the victory on Day 1 in the duet ‘combined’ event (free and thematic), Spain is close to getting first place of this year’s overall ranking of the World Trophy – in 2006 and 2007, Russia won – a competition attended by FINA Honorary Treasurer Dr. Julio Maglione.
