Gay Games 2010: London Orca’s Countdown Kicks Off

>London OrcaWith only 4 months to go until the Gay Games, London Orca water polo team are training hard both in and out of the pool.

Captain Ben Evans explains: “The Gay Games are a real focus for us – a wonderful opportunity to play other gay teams in a hugely enjoyable tournament. But we also play year round in straight leagues in London. For us as gay men and women it’s important that we compete week in-week out in a sometimes rough team sport against people who might otherwise never engage with the gay community. It’s a chance to challenge their stereotypes, and give as good as we get.”

“While our focus in on achieving an outstanding performance in Cologne in July, we have a lot of work to do in the coming months with intensive training programs and a series of preliminary competitions” said Evans, “plus we are still welcoming new players to the team if anyone is interested in joining us on the podium at the Gay Games.”

To help promote the club, London Orca have recently produced a video introducing the club to potential new members:

The Gay Games commence on 31st July and will be held in Cologne, Germany. 12,000 participants from over 70 countries will be taking part.
