Attila Bíró, the federal captain of the Hungarian women’s water polo team, called the Trieste Olympic qualifier a world match. The specialist put it this way because it was possible to know before the start which four bands would reach the semi-finals, where the bands that reached the finals could travel to the Tokyo Olympics.
