China Water Polo Open

I went to see a few men's and women's matches of the The "Good Luck Beijing" 2008 Water Polo China Open at Ying Tung Natatorium. It's a dry run for the real Olympic event. Overall they seemed to do a pretty good job. Security was professional, and everything was running on time.

Signs directing people to the event. I imagine they'll have similar signs during the actual Olympics.

The Australian Olympic team against the Shanghai club team.

When you're playing water polo at a professional level, they've got a neat little buoy to hold the ball in place. After the initial sprint is underway, it gets pulled under water, leaving the ball exactly in the middle of the pool.
