Widely considered one of the world’s top water polo players, Tony Azevedo takes a break from training to talk with PCMag about his favorite apps, waterproof tech, and the upcoming Olympic Games.
Many people have never been to the gym, let alone the Olympic Games. But Tony Azevedo, captain of the USA’s National Men’s Water Polo Team, is heading to London to compete in his fourth. Azevedo has a water polo résumé that would make any landlubber gasp for air.
He joined Team USA in 1998 and played in his first Games at age 18 in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. He went on to play for Stanford University, where he led his team to two NCAA championships (2001, 2002). At the 2004 Olympics in Athens, the attacker led Team USA with 15 goals. Finally, at the 2008 Games in Beijing, his 17 goals helped Team USA win a silver medal, its first Olympic medal in 20 years.
