Water polo or as I like to call it aquatic hand soccer is one of the more obscure Olympic sports. It became an Olympic sport in the 1900′s along with tug of war. Yes tug of war was an Olympic sport until 1920. I’m still not sure what water polo has to do with regular polo or why they wear those funny caps but I do know that they have some attractive players. One being our feature today, Tony Azevedo. He is a Brazilian born member of the USA Water Polo Team.
Reasons to love Azevedo:
1. The London Olympics will be his 4th Olympics representing the US in water polo. Along with Ryan Bailey they are first men to become 4-time Olympians in water polo. He has a silver metal from the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
2. He is an animal lover. While in Beijing he helped raise $4,000 for animal shelters. He rescued his cat from the Adriatic sea.
3. He favorite musical artist are Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen. So classic . . . got to love that.
4. He works out 10 hours a day during Olympic training. 8 1/2 hours which are spent in the pool. Do you think he is immune from pruning?
5. His favorite movie is “The Last of the Mohicans.”
