Sydney University Waterpolo Club and Elite Athlete Program member Anthony Hrysanthos has been named in the Aussie Sharks side ahead of the FINA World League Super Final kicking off tonight in Budapest Hungary.

Hrysanthos was selected in the side following an outstanding season with the Sydney University Lions. The Lions claimed the elusive Australian Waterpolo League crown and Hrysanthos impressed, being named the final series MVP.

The Aussie squad have been in a training camp in Croatia for the past week preparing for the Finals. First up, the Sharks take on host Hungary and there is a high expectation a large and loud crowd will be present.

Along with Hrysanthos, three Sydney University Lions have been named in the Aussie Stingers squad   for their three-week European tour in preparation for the FINA Women’s Water Polo World Cup in September.
