This marks the next big step in further globalizing the incredible performance of all water polo athletes competing in the pools among the world.


The Total Jury Just Grew Bigger - and Better!

THE HONORS

The Total Player Award represents the highest recognition from the international competitive water polo scene a single athlete can receive. It proves the undeniable impact the player has had even among the most critical minds of the craft. With the inclusion of the public vote, the stakes just got upped to the next level.

The voices of the public will make up 20 percent of the total votes, and the remaining 80 percent will be chosen by the jury of coaches from 16 countries, mostly those who have conquered World and European Championships and won Olympic medals. The public community vote concludes on the 10th of December.
