Canada Men's Team widthraws from 19th FINA World Championships Budapest 2022
"After careful consideration, following advice from its medical support staff and upon having held an open discussion with the athletes (including the Team's Captain as well a member of Water Polo Canada’s Athlete Council) and Team Canada’s official COVID Liaison Officer, Water Polo Canada has made the difficult decision to withdraw the Men’s Team from participation in the remainder of the ongoing water polo competition at the Budapest 2022 FINA World Championships.
This decision was made in order to ensure and preserve the short and long-term overall health, safety and well being of participants, which always remains Water Polo Canada’s first and foremost priority. The men’s National Team program will now focus on adequate recovery before turning its attention towards preparing for success at future international events."
