Nestle® NESQUIK® Named Official Flavored Milk & Recovery Drink Of USA Water Polo


Huntington Beach, Calif. – January 31, 2012— NESTLÉ® NESQUIK® a great-tasting chocolate milk, has been named the official flavored milk and recovery drink of USA Water Polo (USAWP). As part of the agreement, NESQUIK will be provided to the USA Men's and Women's Senior National Teams in their preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games. NESTLÉ NESQUIK will also support USAWP on social media platforms, along with submitting special content for inclusion in SkipShot magazine, the official publication of USA Water Polo. In addition, USAWP athletes will also be eligible to make appearances on behalf of NESTLÉ NESQUIK throughout 2012 and the beverage will be promoted at USAWP events through program listings and public address announcements. 

Low-fat chocolate milk has recently been touted as a workout recovery drink. "A recovery drink such as low-fat NESQUIK chocolate milk is a great recovery option for the USA Water Polo National Team athletes," said Shawn Dolan, US Olympic Committee Sport Dietitian. "It is easy for them to grab between weights and a pool session or after a session before their next meal. The combination of carbohydrate, protein, and fluid allows them to replenish and begin the adaptation process after a hard training session. And, the athletes enjoy it!" 

According to USAWP Chief Marketing Officer Jen Rottenberg, “NESQUIK flavored milk is a critical component to the nutritional support we are providing to our Olympians in training. Whether pistachios, apples, or dried fruit snack chips, our objective is to provide wholesome, nutrient-rich fuel for our athletes to complement the long hours they spend training in and out of the pool." She added, "We are so happy to welcome NESQUIK into the USA Water Polo corporate partner family.”

NESQUIK® has been America's #1 flavored milk for over 50 years! NESTLÉ® NESQUIK and the NESQUIK Bunny provide kids and families with fun ways to turn milk into an irresistibly delicious, extra nutritious drink. An eight ounce serving of NESQUIK Powder or Ready-to-Drink provides 40% of the recommended daily intake of calcium. NESQUIK continually provides fun and enjoyment for moms and kids alike, and from generation to generation, families have come to rely upon the great taste of NESQUIK to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Serbia wins 2012 European Championship

Serbia is the new European champion. The Serbs defeated Montenegro in a tense final 9-8 on Sunday in front of a sell-out Pieter van den Hoogenband Swim statium. The absence of the Montenegrin centre-forward Boris Zlokovic, due to a hand injury, and a poor shooting day of top scorer Mladjan Janovic caused difficulties for the 2008 European champions although they sticked with Serbia until the very end of the match. With less than a minute to play, Serbian centre-back Milan Aleksic got his third exclusion but after a Ranko Perovic called time-out, his team was unable to convert the power play as Nikola Janovic at the left 2-meter position was defended very well and could not fire the ball he had received to score. The eventually proved winning goal was made beautifully by the Serbian captain Vanja Udovicic on a power play with just over a minute to play. The 2012 title is the first for Serbia since their 2006 championship in Belgrade, Serbia.

After a nervous start and a very leveled game, Serbia seemed to decided the match in their favor in the fourth quarter when they took an 7-5 and 8-6 lead but Partizan-player Aleksandar Radovic scored three consecutive goals that got Montenegrin back in the game twice before Vanja Udovicic hit the winner with 1.12 to play.

Mladjan Janovic was awarded Best Player of the Tournament just before the medal ceremony.

Serbia: Soro, Šaponjić, Gocić, Udovičić 2, Ćuk, Pijetlović 1, Nikić, Aleksić 1, Radjen 1, Filipović 1, Prlainović 1 , S.Mitrović 2, B.Mitrović. Head coach: Udovičić.

FLASH: Montenegro upsets Hungary for final berth

Friday 27 January 2012, 21:33|Tim Hartog|117 views

The best was saved for the last at the 2012 European Championships here in Eindhoven, The Netherlands day 12. The second semi-final between Montenegro and Hungary produced a real nail biter as Montenegro eventually prevailed and gained the big upset winning 14-13 after extra time. The winning goal was made by veteran Predrag Jokic who characteristic hit from the left corner on a man-up with 2.15 to play in the second half of extra time. A hectic final phase could not bring goals to neither sides with Montenegro reaching their first final since the 2008 Europeans in Malaga who will now have the same participants as in Spain back in 2008 with Serbia as their opponent. Mladjan Janovic was unstoppable scoring five goals for Montenegro before getting excluded with substitution after misconduct with three minutes to play in the final regular quarter. Hungary's Gergely Kiss scored four.

Right from the start it became clear that the game would be tight all the way as Montenegro opened the score by Aleksandar Ivovic from the left wing and grabbed the 2-0 lead after a Mladjan Janovic power play goal when Daniel Varga was excluded. After the quick opening, Hungary came alive and levelled the score before the end of the first period already as Peter Biros converted a penalty and Gergely Kiss found the back of the net.

In the following phase, the initiative was most of the time in Montenegrin hands but Hungary was not to give up. Montenegro on numerous occasions took the lead but could not get up more than two goals before the reigning Olympic champions got back in the contest. The Hungarians were not at their usual best with the man-ups at one point were converted 4 out of 15 and starting goalkeeper Laszlo Baksa was substituted for the experienced Zoltan Szesci with 6.58 to play in the final regular quarter.

The showdown got its peak in the fourth quarter. After trailing 11-9, Hungary made a huge comeback lead by center-forward Adam Steinmetz who first scored a man-up goal from the right 2-meter position and then a good center-forward goal two possessions later for the 11-11 tie. Norbert Hosnyanszky seemed to made a big and maybe decisive goal as he scored from five meter in a counter attack shooting a bomber above the head of the again well-doing Milos Scepanovic. With 2.55 to play, Hungary took the 11-12 lead. The answer by Montenegro took a while but came at the right moment. After Peter Biros was excluded, the man-up seemed to be defended succesfully by the very active Hungarians. Just when Biros returned, Montenegrin centre-back Antonio Petrovic scored his second of the night, again with the ball crawling over the line after Szecsi touched it (his first goal went in similarly, but the goal counted for sure as Ranko Perovic' squad tied the game witht just 0.40 to play. Montenegro got the time-out with thirteen seconds to go but the final shot by Nikola Janovic was blocked by Gergely Kiss right before the goal line with extra time as a result.

An almost sold-out Pieter van den Hoogenband Swim Stadium saw an absolute tense two periods of extra time as Vladimir Gojkovic put Montenegro ahead, again right after the number of players was equaled after a power play. After a repulsed Montenegrin attack, Aleksandar Radovic got an exclusion with substitution and Gergely Kiss scored his fourth goal from the right wing with eight seconds to play in the first extra time half. Tied at 13, the second half started as both teams were clearly exhausted after a long, tense and high speed game. The decision was made in the first phase already as Norbert Hosnyanszky got the exclusion at the center-back position battling with Boris Zlokovic where-after Predrag Jokic threatened a couple of times to score in the left corner for the 14-13 lead. Although Hungary did everything they could in the final phase, an all or nothing active Montenegrin defense prevailed and the hot gold medal favorites Hungary were eliminated.

Montenegro will play Serbia in the final on Sunday with Italy and Hungary playing for the bronze medal right before. The final be a rematch of the 2008 Europeans final where Montenegro got a historic first major tournament title after the European B championship in the road to Malaga, Spain, winning 6-4. Both teams met again in 2009 and 2010 in the FINA World League Final with the home team who won both times (2009 in Podgorica, Montenegro and 2010 in Nis, Serbia).

Montenegro - Hungary 14-13 (2-2, 4-3, 4-3, 2-4) (ET: 1-1, 1-0)

Montenegro: Radic, Brguljan 1, Paskovic 1, Petrovic 2, Klikovac, Radovic, M. Janovic 5, N. Janovic, Ivovic 3, Zlokovic, Gojkovic 1, Jokic 1, Scepanovic.

Hungary: Szecsi, Katonas, Madaras 1, Denes Varga 2, Kasas 1, Hosnyanszky 1, Kiss 4/1, Szivos, Daniel Varga, Biros 2/1, Steinmetz 2, Harai, Baksa.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Awards Ceremony

Above are the Best Defensive Award winners from the SE Zone Winter League High School Championships held at Plantation Central Pool this past weekend. Voting is decided by the referees who have first-hand access to all the players during the course of the tournament.

Congrats to Emily and RJ who unquestionably deserved these accolades. 

However, TMZ.com reported when it was RJ Moore's turn to receive this honor and be photographed with his best defensive player plaque, the award had mysteriously disappeared and was no where to be found.

After a brief investigation it was revealed that another coach decided a player on their team was the defensive award winner, took the plaque from the bling table and presented it to the non-winner???

The incident does have a bitter-sweet ending though.

Once the award was located RJ was allowed to borrow his plaque for the above photo before returning it to it's unrightful owner. Thus going home empty handed so-to-speak. Embarrassed USA Water Polo representatives promised RJ they would replace his plaque with another personally engraved.

USA Water Polo To The Rescue!!!

We Are Not Omnipresence

So if you want your team & it's members to receive the credit and exposure they deserve, feel free to forward photos, videos, updates or anything water polo related.


omnipresence - noun, the state of being everywhere at once (or seeming to be everywhere at once) 

***For those of you who send your anonymous emails knocking this blog and some of the athletes we say you are idiots. You have nothing better to do? No one will ever see your emails or article comments because they will never be published. And they certainly don't hurt us in any way, shape or form cause we are obviously thriving. If you don't like this blog then don't read it. Buy the Sun Sentinel or the Miami Herald and wait and wait and wait to read maybe a dozen water polo articles annually. Or we have a better suggestion, if you think you can do better start your own blog. Which FYI someone already attempted, failing miserably with only one response and one reader. But hey, it's a free country so give it a shot. 

This blog is dedicated to water polo, particularly here in south Florida. We are determined to boost the confidence of younger players, give recruiters exposure to our high school talent and highlight everyone in between who enjoys this wonderful sport.

Sports and Kids: A Healthy Diet for Your Young Athlete

You've got a growing athlete on your hands! With water polo, Little League, soccer, basketball and the swim team and more, the opportunities to participate in sports with qualified and supportive leadership are wonderful.

Athletes have often concocted bizarre diets in hopes that they will give them the edge they need to win. But the science of sports nutrition is in its infancy -- and studies on the nutritional needs of the young athlete are almost non-existent.

So if no research exist, how do you know which foods are best for your young athlete? Common sense, basic nutrition knowledge and a few insights are all you need. For the hard playing, growing young athlete good nutrition is a key component of athletic performance. A balanced diet is the most important nutrition-related factor in your child's athletic performance. It's your job, as parent, to keep track of that component.

For an athletic competition, your child needs a good supply of energy. A meal relatively high in carbohydrates is the best choice. Keep the levels of fat and protein low. Since they take longer to digest, they can cause nausea or even vomiting.

It is best to exercise on a relatively empty stomach. Eat no sooner than two hours before competition. Digestion requires routing the blood supply to the digestive tract to pick up nutrients. By the time exercise begins, the blood should be freed of that task so it can focus on the more immediate job of carrying oxygen-rich blood to exercising muscles. The energy supplied to, and stored in, muscles for use during exercise was put there hours or days earlier. And, don't forget the fluids!
Important Note: Simple sugars like candy or soda eaten just prior to an event may cause an interfering swing in blood sugar levels that could adversely affect your child's performance without providing the anticipated quick energy boost.

For a four o'clock water polo game, a good one o'clock pre-event lunch would be:
  1. Bagel with a small amount of peanut butter and some honey
    1 cup low fat milk
  2. 2 slices whole wheat bread with 1 oz of turkey breast, tomato slices and lettuce
    1 cup fruit yogurt
    1 cup orange juice
  3. 2 slices 1/3 inch thick slice of Power Bread
    Carrot sticks
    1 cup low fat milk

Carbohydrates are the cornerstone of the athlete's diet . Active kids need more calories than their sedentary, TV-gazing counterparts. The best way to get those extra calories is in the form of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are important in exercise because they provide fuel for the body. Complex carbohydrates provide many important B vitamins that are needed to help put that energy to use. Carbs a few hours before practice will help supply energy needed during the event, and some carbohydrates eaten soon after will help replenish the muscles with fuel.

Select from the following for some energy- boosting carbs: whole-grain bagels, cereals, pancakes or pasta and yogurt, popcorn, oranges, bananas, apples, pears and fruit juices.

Protein is important in moderation. The role of protein in sports diets has been blown way out of proportion. Protein is necessary for tissue building and repair. Eating excessive amounts will not build bigger or stronger muscles. Kids age 6 to 10 need about 0.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. On a daily basis that comes to about 24 to 28 grams of protein. Two to three glasses of milk, a serving of meat, fish or poultry and a variety of whole grains and some vegetables will more than meet daily protein needs. Spread out protein intake over the course of the day. Too much protein can lead to dehydration. For this reason steer away from protein powders and amino acid supplements.

Fat is important to young athletes in order to help the body absorb vitamins A, D, E and K, and to supply essential fatty acids. When eaten in moderation, it can be a concentrated source of energy. Very active children need lots of energy and will need moderate amounts of fat in their diet to meet that need. Fats should be primarily mono-unsaturated or polyunsaturated, and should make up no more than 30 percent of calorie intake.

Vitamins and minerals
These are necessary for releasing the energy from the foods you eat or getting that energy to the muscles. Eating a well balanced diet is necessary to get the amount of vitamins and minterals you need in their proper proportions.

Besides calories, the other nutrient needed in greater amount by the young athlete is liquids. Liquids are the most important part of an athlete's diet . Fluid is important to prevent overheating and dehydration. Because muscles heat up during exercise, extra fluid is needed to maintain the blood volume so that the circulating fluid can reach into the muscles and carry the heat away to the skin. The heat is released by primarily by sweating . Sweating, without replacement fluids can lead to dehydration. Dehydration's first symptom is fatigue -- not what a successful athlete needs for optimum performance.

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of fluid imbalance. That is because they don't handle heat well, they get hotter during exercise and their hearts have a lower blood output. Be sure your child drinks water before, during and after exercise. Supply him with his own water bottle that you can see through and check regularly to be sure he is drinking. Children may not notice the need for liquid or the signs of overheating. Careful monitoring on your part is important, especially on hot humid days when sweat does not evaporate effectively so cooling is not as efficient.

The best fluid replacement is water, but a sports drink or a diluted juice also works well. A full strength juice or juice drink is too concentrated a source of carbohydrates and could lead to nausea and cramping during an athletic event.

Afterward, water-containing foods along with liquids are a good way to replace both carbohydrates and fluids. Juicy fruits like watermelon, tomatoes, grapes and oranges are good choices.
