The Olympics are here so it’s time for the Peacock network to draw viewers to sports that are largely dormant on TV during non-Olympics years. So how do you sell water polo? Find photogenic athletes to reveal the savagery that takes place under water. One hint: think about a close shave before playing against Team Hungary.

All-time greats Tony Azevedo and Maggie Steffens walk us down that path in this NBC video.
