Last week in Sydney saw the nations best water polo players battle it out for the National League Titles. The finals series involved two mens and two womens teams from Brisbane - many of whom make up the QAS water polo squads whose nutrition is looked after by Holly (women) and Peta (men).
Congratulations to the Barracudas women's water polo team (pictured below) who won narrowly in a penalty shootout and to the Barra’s men who won bronze. Both of the Breakers teams narrowly missed the semi-finals.
A number of these players are now preparing for the World Championships in Shanghai in July 2011 as part of Australian teams and are involved in camps and competition leading up to this important event.
As a prelude to the finals the girls played a staff vs players game in the QAS recovery pool – won narrowly by the staff (with a few ‘ring-ins’). This was followed by the annual ‘bake-off’, where the girls show off their culinary (but not necessarily nutrition-based) skills in the kitchen – judged by their Holly. The winning entry by Australian player Jane Moran was a choc mousse meringue cake which definitely did not tick too many ‘healthy nutrition’ boxes, but was a bit of a taste sensation!
