Team USA water polo player Alex Bowen explains how players that play water polo in Europe have an edge as they play against some of the best players in the world on a regular basis.
ALEX BOWEN: My name is Alex Bowen. I've been part of Team USA for eight years now. I've played in one Olympics, and I'm looking forward to my second here in Tokyo. A lot of us are playing in Champions League or in major European competitions. So we are able to see a lot of these high level players individually, either with teams that are similar to their national team or teams that rely on them.
So we really get to see some of these players at their best. So we know what to expect for them when they're playing in their national team. I'm recovering from an injury to my hand, and things are going very, very well, a lot faster than expected. So I'm really looking forward to get going in the Olympic movement and really start playing.
