Water polo is a team sport played in a swimming pool and consists of putting the ball into a goal. Two teams are measured, made up of 6 players plus the goalkeeper, differentiated between them by the colour of the cap, which are measured in four 8-minute periods of effective play. The player who scores the most goals wins. It is one of the most physically demanding sports, since players have to float during the whole game, as they are not allowed to touch the bottom of the pool. Only the goalkeeper can touch the ball with both hands.
