Hungary still proud!

Volume warning: please turn your volume down for video

Hungary's men's Olympic water polo team lost to Italy in the quarter finals 11-9. The team played an excellent match but the Italians threw in an excellent long distance shot in the dying minutes of the game to score their 11th point. The Hungarian team lost their first 2 matches but managed to win the last two before meeting Italy. A few members of the current team were veterans from the previous 3 gold medal winning teams for Hungary.

Hungary won gold in men's water polo at the 2000 Sydney games, 2004 Athens games and 2008 Beijing games. Hungarians are still very proud of their water polo team nonetheless. It looks as if the veterans of the team will now retire which will mean that the Hungarian water polo team at the next Olympic games will be very youthful. Good luck at the next Olympics, Hungary is behind you all the way!
