Water Polo Australia has announced a 13-strong women’s team for the upcoming 2021 Olympics.
Grammar Women Abby Andrews (2017) and Gabi Palm (2015) will both debut in Tokyo for their first Olympic campaign, the result of several years of hard work and commitment to the sport.
The Aussie Stingers have matched it with the best over the last few Olympics, receiving a medal in three of the last five competitions since the Women’s event debuted in 2000. The team will start their campaign at Tokyo’s Tatsumi Water Polo Centre on 24 July, with Australia drawn in Pool A with European Champions Spain, Netherlands, Canada and South Africa.
Gabi and Abby join a strong history of BGGS Water Polo National representatives and Olympic alumnae, including Deborah Handley (1972), Nikita Williams (Cuffe, 1996), Suzie Fraser (2000) and Sophie Smith (2003).
We wish both Abby and Gabi every success in Tokyo in July.
