MISSOULA- The basketball mega-stars, the gymnasts and sprinters will get much of the attention at the Olympics, but don't forget about sports like synchronized diving, badminton and water polo.
Missoula is home to some water polo enthusiasts, who are members of the Griz Water Polo Club, which is not affiliated with the University of Montana.
Members play a couple of times a week and seek out regional competition, which isn't always easy.
Water polo is like many teams sports, in which you pass, shoot and try to score. But few are as tiring and physical.
"The other day I gave someone a black eye. There's swimming and a little bit of basketball because it's full court. There's a little bit of hockey because of the power play. And there's a little wrestling," added polo club member Lance Bohlman.
