Hyland’s-Sponsored Water Polo Teams
Heading for Medals
Who would have thought a year ago that
Hyland's would be associated with Olympic-medal winning teams? Yet
here we are, anxiously watching the USA National men's and women's
teams, endorsers of our Earache Drops, poised to win medals in the
2008 Summer Olympics!
USA men's water polo team, which has not reached a medal round at
the Olympics since 1992, defeated Germany late Monday night in an
exciting 8-7 victory, winning their group and advancing to the
semi-finals! A win for the men in the semi-finals will ensure the
team its first medal since 1988. The team's next match is scheduled
for Friday (8/22) at 7:40/4:40 a.m. ET/PT. At that time, Team USA
will face the Serbian team, which won its quarterfinal match against
Spain last night.
Women's water polo was added for the
first time as an Olympic event in 2000. That year, the USA women's
team won the Silver medal in a game against Australia in Sydney. In
2004, in Athens, the women's team won the Bronze, again defeating
Australia. This year, by virtue of the women's team winning its
Group A, the women's team faced off once again against Australia in
the semi-finals last night. Team USA defeated Australia (9-8) and
will now advance to the Gold medal match against the Netherlands.
This match will take place at 6:20/3:20 a.m. ET/PT on Thursday,
8/21. While the Women's team is assured a medal, we're certainly
rooting for the team's first Gold!!
Both teams took Hyland's Earache Drops
with them and we like to think the Earache Drops are helping to keep
them healthy and in the water! Check out more about both teams at
