The Australian Women’s Water Polo team are set to call the Sunshine Coast home ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games, with the Olympic squad to be based there from 7 February through to their departure to the Games.
It’s back to the future for the ‘Aussie Stingers’ who called the Sunshine Coast home in the six months prior to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, where they went on to win the gold medal.
While the Aussie Stingers have already secured their spot at the Tokyo Olympics, the pandemic will likely reduce international travel and competitions ahead of the Games. That meant a new home base needed to be sourced.
Thanks to the support of the Sunshine Coast Council, the squad will be based at Coolum using facilities at Kawana Aquatics and
