As far as men’s team sports go for Croatia at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the Barracudas were our only shot.
Basketball. Didn’t qualify.
Handball. Didn’t qualify.
Soccer. Didn’t qualify.
After a 3-2 record in group play – losing to Australia and Spain while beating Serbia, Montenegro, and Kazakhstan – the Croatian water polo team will now face off against reigning Euro champions, Hungary, in the quarterfinals August 4th at 7:50PM Tokyo time. Hungary lost to Greece and drew Italy in group play to finish in third spot. Whoever wins this game will face the winner of Greece/Montenegro in the semis.
Croatia last took the gold in water polo at the 2017 World Championships. They were also 2012 Olympic gold medalists in London.
