Night club at 2:40 am? Good to know that our athletes are serious about their pre-tournament preparation.

I think the men's team was done playing. Don't know the time change well enough to know if the women were done by then. If not, they played ok and won the gold medal by a mile.

The water polo teams were done playing and (well deserved) celebrating the women’s Gold Medal.

Yeah, US men didn't make it to the 1-8 classification matches. Both teams were done.
