U.S. water polo, Ann Arbor's Betsey Armstrong win gold medal
Ann Arbor native Betsey Armstrong made 15 saves to help the the U.S. Olympic Women's Water Polo Team win its fourth straight FINA World League Super Final gold medal with a 6-4 victory against Australia in Changshu, China, on Sunday.
Team USA dominated the second half, especially on the defensive end, holding Australia without a goal over the final two periods while it wiped out a 4-3 halftime deficit.
"Defensively we played very well all tournament, but we certainly understand that this means nothing when we get to the Olympic Games," said Team USA coach Adam Krikorian.
Next up for Team USA is a four-game exhibition series with Hungary in California, which starts July 2 and ends July 8 with a nationally televised game on NBC Sports Network.
