Student-athlete performances in Kazan still fill Summer Universiade lore and the women’s waterpolo gold medal game certainly fit that description, with the host nation Russian Federation taking on the always-strong Hungarians at the Burevestnik Swimming Venue.
Both teams came into the knockout rounds as the teams to beat, with the Russian knocking Italy out of the finals with a 14-7 thrashing. The Hungarians kept their Summer Universiade 2013 undefeated streak alive, squeeking by Team Canada 7-6 for this date with destiny.
Who will come out on top? It’s time to relive the excitement!
