Water polo made its Olympic debut at the Paris Games in 1900. It was not included in 1904, but would be present at each subsequent edition of the Olympic Games.
In the early days, the players rode on floating barrels that resembled mock horses, and swung at the ball with mallet-like sticks. This made it similar to equestrian polo, hence its name.
London 2012 Men’s Olympic Water Polo gold medal team ~
Croatia secured gold in the men’s Water Polo final at London 2012. The Balkan outfit have been the outstanding side of the London 2012 tournament, with eight wins from eight matches, and end it as worthy champions. Their dominance in defence was too much for the Italians, who are reigning world champions.
