The Importance of Women’s Water Polo for Water Polo

The world around us sometimes seems like a never ending continuation of situations, decisions and problems happening for reasons long forgotten and meanings long lost. It seems that our road is already paved for us by those who have walked it before us, and it is up to us to walk the same path for those who will come after us. It is not the possibility of a mediocre and molded life that frightens us, it is the lack of opportunity to change anything about it. Having dreams means ignoring everything society thinks, feels and allows to be possible. Dreams come from that private place where we are the heroes. They come from that same place all our prayers come from. They come from that place where our story has a happy ending, or at least a possibility of one. Sports are an agreed upon platform on which dreams are allowed to exist and having them just means having hope and belief in those rare opportunities that impact and change our lives. We are all here just trying to give the meaning to all the trials and tribulations that life puts us trough. Sports allow us a glimpse into a world which is made fair by the acceptance that nobody is above the rules of a sport. Sports make us equals.

Hrvatska će se natjecati u obje konkurencije, dakle i ženskoj i muškoj.Neka mi nitko ne zamjeri, u ovom članku fokusirat ću se samo na muški dio natjecanja.No, o našima se već više-manje sve zna, sastavi obje naše vrste su objavljeni, provjere su odigrane, grupe se znaju i svi sa nestrpljenjem očekuju početak. Stoga ću se u ovom tekstu pozabaviti malo sa mjestom odigravanja, kao i domaćom reprezentacijom.
