I wanted you all to spread the word to the world about this great book ( that my friend and coach Kyle Utsumi has written. He runs the Stanford water-polo program . It will be an inspiration to anyone following Olympics and embracing the spirit of TEAM USA. ..As you probably know the USA women waterpolo team are favored to win the Olympic gold medal in Rio. The story of the book is about the underdog Sydney team that surprised the world, launching USA Women's Water Polo's rise to dominance. My daughters coach Bernice was the goalie on that first Olympic team! The story of how she started playing water polo and became an Olympian is featured in Chapter 11 of the book. And coach Jess ( who coaches for high schoo-lers) was part of the next generation, which brought the gold to the USA for the first time in 2012. Its a great effort to keep the history alive and write about some of the great Olympians we have in this country
