FINA world championships

You may have caught some of the exciting swimming finals featuring Australian athletes over the last 2 nights - more on this from Kerry later in the week! For the last week our womens and mens water polo teams have also been battling it out in Shanghai with the the world's best. Many of these athletes are looked after by Holly and Peta at the Queensland Academy of Sport. The girls lost narrowly in a penalty shoot-out end to their quarter final with Italy and now play off for 5th to 8th place. The boys needed to beat powerhouse Spain to reach the quarters but their narrow loss means they play off for 9th to 12th position. Good luck to both teams in the rest of the tournament.
