Steffens Takes Charge of U.S. Women’s Roster in Pursuit of 4th Consecutive Gold in Water Polo Team

U.S. Women’s Water Polo Roster for Paris Olympics Announced: Steffens, Johnson Lead Charge for Fourth Consecutive Gold

The U.S. women’s water polo team is gearing up for the Paris Olympics with a powerhouse roster that includes seasoned veterans and rising stars. Maggie Steffens, the only holdover from the 2012 gold medal-winning team, leads the pack as the career leading scorer in Olympic women’s water polo with 56 goals.

Steffens, along with stars like Ashleigh Johnson, Rachel Fattal, Kaleigh Gilchrist, and Maddie Musselman, are aiming for their fourth consecutive gold medal, a feat no team – men or women – has achieved in water polo at the Games. Johnson, known as one of the top goaltenders in the world, played a crucial role in the team’s gold medal win in Tokyo in 2021.

The U.S. women’s team has been dominating the competition, boasting a 17-1-1 record at the Olympics under Steffen’s leadership. With a perfect 14-0 record this year and a recent world championship win in Qatar, the team is looking to continue their winning streak in Paris.

While some players like Ava Johnson and Denise Mammolito missed the cut for the final roster, the team is confident in the talent and depth of their lineup. Fans can expect an exciting and competitive performance from the U.S. women’s water polo team as they aim to make history once again at the Paris Olympics.
