Megan to Play Water Polo for Australia
Congratulations to Megan Cranley who has been selected for the U18 Australian Water Polo squad, she is one of only six Western Australian athletes to make the team.
Megan plays for the Melville Water Polo Club and has been playing for four seasons. She’s also been involved with the Western Australian Institue of Sport for 18 months.
Selection for the Australian squad was based on previous performances at club national championships and on the recommendation of state coaches. Megan currently has a heavy training schedule, doing 12 – 13 sessions per week.
We asked Megan what she enjoys most about the sport: “I really enjoy the intensity and physicality of the game. It’s really very exciting to be a part of, especially when everything just works. I also really love the girls that I play with and how close we are because water polo works so much better when everyone is in sync.”, she said.
Megan’s first commitment is a training camp in Tokyo in early November. She’ll then attend multiple camps next year cumulating in the FINA Youth Women’s Water Polo Championships in Israel next September. We wish Megan luck for the year ahead and hope that she continues to make the squad from camp to camp.
