This is the best information out there so far (thanks to whoever posted it on the cage), hopefully the USA waterpolo site will have more information posted later today. it also seems that FINA will be streaming the games.

Here is a link to the official Fina site. http://www.fina.org/H2O/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=4687&Itemid=1688
Tweets during the day about streaming but have seen nothing yet on finaTV. http://www.fina.org/H2O/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2189&Itemid=1209

Hoping it pops at last minute.

Just watched live opening ceremonies via the following link I received via Facebook. Looks like Russia and China playing at 6:30 am California time. Might just be Russia games via a Russian station...

I know it's international water polo and not an age group competition where a simple comfortable win is sufficient, but what do people think of a 34-3 game with Spain beating, as FINA puts it, "relative newcomer to the international arena" Singapore. Quarterly scoring by Spain of 7-8-9-10 in 1st through 4th qtrs.

Is there not an idea or concept of sportsmanship in the international athletics community?

Talking of sportsmanship. What about no 12 for SA taking a full kick to the face out of the water by the Hungarian player today in the 3rd minute of the game! Is that necessary? Surely Hungary knew that they would beat South Africa?! She is their strongest player, their captain and now she cannot play for the rest of the tournament because her nose is broken! It seems that the Hungarians were out to hurt the smaller and less experienced SA players... disappointing sportsmanship and reffing (should have been out for brutality) USA, expect a physical game tomorrow. Hoping USA get the win.
BTW the SA girls just want to learn and gain experience even paying their own way to get there, they deserve better treatment by their opponents!

Sounds like someone made a high odds bet on an improbable outcome and then made it happen, LOL! Sure it's just coincidence.

How about today’s totally classless, 42 to zero drubbing of Singapore by a likely disappointed, frustrated and now, very disappointing Hungarian team?

42 to 0 is over a goal a min. Reading the thankfully brief post game commentary it mentioned that Hungary pressed for most of the game. Nice call Hungarian coach.

I too was shocked by the earlier 34 to 3 game referenced above, but 42 to zero is simply obscene. I think playing defense and setting out a game objective of no goals allowed is fine, by why press and counter against a team that would have been a middle of the pack team at the recent 18’s JO’s?

My guess is that Hungary, finishing 3rd in their pool and now playing for 5th place tomorrow decided to run up goal totals for their key scorers so as to have one of them take home the tournament scoring title as some sort of consolation. Again, in my opinion, totally classless and lacking any sense of sportsmanship.

yes and that person Rita Keszthelyi should have been banned for the cowardly kick on the Kelsy White the South African Captain which resulted in a broken nose and her missing her only big tournament of the year
Nose op when she gets home
Not so much as and apology or are you ok from her or any member of the Hungarian coaching staff.We had been thinking that Hungary was the spiritual home of waterpolo but after this unprovocated attack and the way they approached the game against us our opinion has now changed. Blood in the water has a whole new meaning now .Clearly winning is everything to them.Kelsy and her team were so happy to lose 18 to 1 against USA .hard too believe but they enjoyed the spirit of the game hard but fair.Anyway only one game left against Singapore and Kels is going to try and play with some kind of nose protection. we,ll see how it goes

Great job and congratulations Team USA ladies & coaches on a very successful tournament and season. Three tournaments, three wins. The World Cup final was tough but in my opinion was not as close as the final score. Still congratulations to Australia on a nice tournament as well. Too bad Spain didn’t have their full roster; it would have been nice to see how well a full Spanish team would have done and maybe face them in the final.
