The Olympic Games are about to start. The eyes of the entire world will be on London and the venues across the cities. Popular and unknown athletes are ready to challenge themselves, to try to overcome their own limits and win a medal. Once again, water polo will be in the list of the sports practised at the Olympics. It may sound strange to those who are not familiar with it, but water polo is the most longeve team sport at the Olympic Games. In fact, it was introduced in Paris in 1900 and since then every edition of the main event has had its water polo tournament. Indeed, the competition was extended also to women starting from Sydney 2000.

In order to celebrate the oldest Olympic team sport, Sports UN provides the complete archive of water polo at the Games. We start from Paris 1900, where only seven teams entered the competition and represented four different countries, and we arrive to Beijing 2008, with an established 12-team format (8 for women) with preliminary rounds and knockout stage. This is an extraordinary travel throughout the 20th century, with fantastic stories from every single edition.
