Water Polo's Coach Graham Makes Impact In London

Aug 1, 2012

While most Americans are enjoying the 2012 Olympics from the comfort of their couches, Pacific Water Polo head coach James Graham is spending his summer in London assisting the U.S. Men's Water Polo Team.

Conducting statistical analysis on every squad in the Olympics, Graham provides the U.S. coaching staff with in-depth breakdowns of each team's tendencies.

Graham's insight appears to be working, as the U.S. team is off to a 2-0 start and at the top of its group with four points. The U.S. has allowed the second-fewest goals of any squad in its group, defeating Montenegro, 8-7, before beating Romania, 10-8.

"It is amazing to be a part of the Olympics and to see the U.S. start 2-0," Graham said. "We are all really excited, but we still have a lot of work to do. Go USA!"

The U.S. will face Great Britain tomorrow, August 2, at 10:20 AM PST, before wrapping up group play with matches against Serbia and Hungary.
