Cuban and Slovak water polo players clash in Havana



HAVANA, Cuba, Jan 13 (ACN) In a fierce duel marked by great rivalry, the Cuban women's water polo team defeated Slovakia 9-8 in the first match of the training period for both teams in this city.

The Europeans won the first half 5-3, but the Cuban team, albeit decimated by COVID-19, reacted after the break and managed better combinations and more effective attacks to finish the third quarter with a 6-6 tie.

The Slovakian team broke the tie at the beginning of the fourth period, but the Cubans evened the actions again with only a minute to go and scored the winning goal with 10 seconds left on the clock.

These are practice games as the visitors prepare for the European Championship in February and the locals get ready for the pre-World Championship, expected to be held before May, since the 19th World Waterpolo Championship is scheduled for May 13 to 29 in Fukuoka, Japan, according to the official program of the International Swimming Federation.
