WATCH: The Agony and Glory of Water Polo Coaches

No sport ends with a better celebration than water polo with its traditional everyone-gets-wet conclusion. Plus, the difficulty in officiating the mainly underwater game makes coaches even more prone to confusion and disdain than their landed-sport counterparts. This FINA video documents like a wildlife production the behaviors spanning from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other of top-level international water polo coaches.

Try not to be inspired by the crescendo of celebratory dunks in the pool. One standout: still no explanation for how the grinning Dejan Savic avoided a soaking after Serbia’s recent gold medal.
