It has been like a leave vu. How to go back nine years ago. Then, the scenario was the London pool. Also semifinals of some Olympic Games. Also against Hungary. They also won the Spanish. And also the selection of the United States expected in the final.
Everything is repeated. In the end of Saturday they wait for the usual, favorites, Americans, who have passed over the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) in the other semifinal. But the Spanish team of Women's Waterpolo this time does not conform with the silver that won in London 2012.
At the Tatsumi aquatic center, today the girls led by Miki Oca have fun. Always ahead of the Hungares on the scoreboard throughout the game. They did not grant a single goal until the middle of the second quarter. A defensive wall. And the porter, Laura Esther, stopped everything.
Stretching the arm and getting the left palm or right to the squad. The Catalan of the CN Sabadell held his selection when Hungary dominated. It's worth seeing in repeated loop the hand by hand that brings the Hungarian Star, Rita Keszthelyi.
But Spain has won 8-6 to Hungary because another Catalan, Anni Espan, has directed the attack, stolen the ball in defense and scored three grills. She in the last she let out her arm so that the ball booted into the center of the target before getting into the goal by saying to the Hungarian archery.
Nor should we forget the benjamina of the group, the girl in the national team, Elena Ruiz (16 years old). Rubí made another hat-trick. She is being the surprise in a tournament where she debuted with five goals against South Africa.
The "Water Warriors" have already ensured a new metal for the Spanish delegation. They carry an impeccable championship in which they passed over the Chinese in quarters (11-7), and swept South Africa (29-4) and Australia (15-9), and with solvency to Canada (14-10) . The only puncture has been against the Netherlands (13-14).Date Of Update: 05 August 2021, 08:24
