Football Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

It was a record-breaking day in the water polo, where the USA broke the record for the most goals scored in a single match, thrashing Japan 25-4 ... and then Spain beat it, thumping South Africa 29-4. There were 10 different scorers for Spain, with 16-year-old Elena Ruiz getting five.

World champions the United States began their quest for a third straight Olympic gold medal in women’s water polo by storming into the record books with a 25-4 humbling of hosts Japan at the Tatsumi Water Polo Centre on Saturday - it was 3-3 at one point early on, though it didn’t stay close for long. But the U.S. record for most goals scored in a single match at the Olympics stood just a few hours before being overhauled by reigning European champions Spain, who crushed South Africa 29-4 to lay down a marker of their own.

“We got off to a rocky start, especially defensively,” said US captain Maggie Steffens, who scored five goals. “The Olympics gives you extra bit of energy and excitement and it was nice to see our team recover and take a deep breath.”

“We’re human, and we get nervous just like everyone else,” US coach Adam Krikorian said. “It’s the first game of the Olympics and those jitters aren’t going to go away for us or for any other team. Sometimes it just gets us, but once we settled down, we were much better.”
