This OTHER dominant US women's national team has just made history



However, they are not the only US women's national team that completely suppresses the competition.

Turn, if you will, to the US Women's Water Polo national team, which defeated Spain 11-6 at the FINA World Cup on Friday in South Korea's Gwangju. (FINA is the Fédération Internationale de Natation or the International Swimming Federation.) With this victory, they sealed their third consecutive World Cup victory – a feat no other national water polo team, men or women, has ever achieved.

Do you think that's dominance? There is more: they have won 53 games in a row and want to get their third gold medal in a row at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo next year. In fact, they are the only team to win a medal at every Olympic water polo event since women's water polo became an Olympic sport in 2000.

Oh, they also won three World Championships in a row.

After the women's historic victory coach Adam Krikorian said the players would mention them in the same way as the women's national football team and women's national basketball team, both of which dominate in their respective sports. And they take this comparison very seriously.

"We are very proud, we want to show people what we can do as a team, as a program, as a collective staff," he said. "And we feel like a spokesman for water ball sports … It's more meaningful than just selfish glory, it inspires us to continue this run and hopefully we can move forward."

If you're ready to extend your sports program to the world of women's water polo, you do not have to wait until Tokyo 2020 to do so. The USWNT (Water Polo Edition) will be broadcasted next month to the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
