Germany nearly won it all on the water after losing so much off of it. Only a 3-2 loss to Great Britain in the men's under-21 final prevented Germany from sweeping all four divisions at the 2018 International Canoe Federation Canoe Polo World Championships in Welland.
Canoe Polo is a spectacular team game, which combines elements of water polo, basketball and canoeing! The game is played by two teams of five players each, trying to score goals with a water polo ball in a net suspended above the water at each end of a "playing pitch".
Canoe-polo athletes require strength and a wide range of paddling skills, including the Eskimo roll.
