Extractions: Hungarian water polo player banned Click here for more on this story Posted: Saturday November 27, 1999 07:29 PM LONDON (Reuters) Top Hungarian water polo player Tibor Benedek has been suspended for 15 months after testing positive for an anabolic steroid, the International Amateur Swimming Federation (FINA) said. FINA, the world governing body for aquatic sports, said Benedek had tested positive for chlortestosterone (clentubol) in a doping control on June 26 at an Italian national league match involving his club A.S. Roma Pallnuoto. In September, the Italian swimming federation imposed an eight-month ban, running from August 27, and on appeal this was reduced to three months, FINA said in a statement from its Lausanne headquarters. But the FINA executive, disagreeing with the Italian ruling, ordered a hearing of the FINA doping panel in Lausanne last Monday. The panel decided to impose a 15-month ban, which will include the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

Submit A Special Request Olympic Sports History As swimming became a popular recreation in England during the 1860s and 1870s, several water sports developed, roughly patterned after land sports. Among them were water football (or soccer), water rugby, water handball, and water polo, in which players rode on floating barrels, painted to look like horses, and struck the ball with a stick. Water rugby became the most popular of these sports, but somehow the water polo name became attached to it, and it's been attached ever since. As played in England, the object of the game was for a player to touch the ball, with both hands, at the goal end of the pool. The goaltender stood on the pool deck, ready to dive on any opponent who was about to score. Water polo quickly became a very rough sport, filled with underwater fights away from the ball, and it wasn't unusual for players to pass out for lack of air. In 1877, the sport was tamed in Scotland by the addition of goalposts. The Scots also replaced the original small, hard rubber ball with a soccer ball and adopted rules that prohibited taking the ball under the surface or "tackling" a player unless he had the ball. The Scottish game, which emphasized swimming speed, passing, and team work, spread to England during the early 1880s, to Hungary in 1889, to Austria and Germany in 1894, to France in 1895, and to Belgium in 1900.
Extractions: AOC lobbies for gender equality Click here for more on this story Posted: Wednesday June 14, 2000 09:54 AM SYDNEY, Australia (AP) More females will compete at the Sydney 2000 Olympics than at any previous summer Games after the Australian Olympic Committee successfully lobbied for sexual equality in two sports. AOC president John Coates announced Wednesday that planned reductions in the size of women's indoor volleyball and water polo squads had been scrapped. The 12 women's squads for indoor volleyball had been cut from 13 to 11 players to accommodate extra beach volleyball players and the late inclusion of women's water polo in the Games program. The full quota was this week restored. Women's water polo squads had initially been limited to 11 players but would now contain 13 players, in line with the men's water polo squads. Coates said the reductions had been originally implemented due to accommodation limits in the Olympic Athletes' Village. National Olympic Committees would be responsible for housing the extra athletes, he added.

Extractions: Water polo is played between two teams of seven players trying to defend their goals while scoring at the other's end of the pool. Players are not allowed to touch the bottom or sides of the pool and instead must swim or tread water the entire game. The game consists of four periods, each seven minutes in actual playing time and separated by two-minute intervals. However, stoppages for a wide range of violations, or ordinary fouls, are frequent, and a typical game lasts 65 to 70 minutes.

They're this tough: Center-forward Heather Moody took a blow to the face that bloodied her nose and knocked her loopy late in the semifinal match against the Netherlands on Friday. "But all she kept saying while the trainers were trying to fix her up was, 'What's the score? Are we still ahead?'" said coach Guy Baker. And they're this tough: Center-forward Maureen O'Toole, the 39-year-old mother who came out of retirement to play in these Games because they marked the first time women's water polo has been an Olympic sport, described one of her goals thusly: "Well, the defender tried to grab my face and missed, and that left me a pretty good shooting opportunity."
