The women's national water polo team ended its long journey at the World Championships in Doha with a smile.

In the seventh-place final, which served as a decisive playoff for Olympic qualification, Coach Carlo Silipo's team secured victory over Canada with a score of 18-12.

Having conceded the goal that opened the match, the Italian women reacted immediately and made a decisive statement, without allowing their adversaries the chance to come back. Italy were ahead 5-4 at the end of the first quarter, 11-8 at the end of the second, 13-9 after the third and, as above, ended the match at 18-12.
