Swedish Intermission - Water Polo


As a transition from our nude Swedes to not-so-nudes, I thought I'd post this photo of the Swedish national water polo team in Athens, said to be from 1906.  That was not an Olympic year, and I can't figure out if the date is wrong or if they were just looking for a warm place to practice.
Edited to add:  See Tom's comment for info on the 1906 games.

  1. That was the 1906 Intercalated Games. According to the Wikipedia article, they were considered Olympic games at the time, but have since been removed and renamed.
