Unlike their women’s team, the United States’ men are currently not the main contender for the gold medal, but with players like Cupido, Hooper and Bowen they are a team to watch during this World Championships in Gwangju. Alex Bowen sheared some of his expectations leading up to the tournament with us.

You have a very young but strong team – what can we expect from Team USA at this World Championship? What is your goal?

Thank you, I think we can surprise some people. Our goal is always to get better every game and make a good run.

New rules – Did you manage to adapt? Do you think you can benefit from the sped up gameplay?

I think some of the new rules are great, the new live time substitution rule and inside water rules, I think they will improve the game. Personally, I will benefit from the new rules and faster gameplay. I think it favors my type of game.

Who is the No.1 favorite for the gold in your opinion?

There are a lot of strong teams on this World Championships, but I think we can surprise a lot of people this summer!

Surely, this US Navy SEAL training session was a good preparation for them 🙂
