Today I have the honor and great pleasure to welcome another world champion and MVP to the podcast. None other than Felipe Perrone pays us a visit and provides us with exciting insights into his past, the current situation in Barcelona and also what it was like as a 16-year-old teenager to make the journey to Europe alone from Brazil. For example, what role guests on the podcast played and how it feels to switch to Pro Recco.

So look forward to great stories and things that perhaps not everyone knows about Felipe.

"We need to rethink the mode of current major tournaments like a world cup" - Vaughn Marlow

For smaller water polo nations, it may make sense in the long term to change the mode so that they increasingly meet teams with whom they can compete on equal terms. Of course, such games are fun for all involved, but especially on the side of the losing team, the motivation is relatively dampened even before the tournament starts. The bottom line is that such games don't do much for either side.

An important aspect in the future will be technology. What can be taken over from other sports and what will bring valuable insights to both the player and the coach, which will then flow back into training. VR and real-time analysis are just two of many other points.

"We have to addopt from others but with our own capabilities in mind" - Vaughn Marlow

I am pleased that today we are getting a glimpse of the water polo structure in the country and more about Vaughn's work with the players. what exactly are the challenges in his country and under what conditions do they travel to tournaments like the World Cup or the World Championship.

With Karl we have the new president of the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta (ASA) as our guest today. Karl was the head coach of the national team for about 10 years and is now responsible for all the aqua sports in Malta (Swimming, Waterpolo, Open Sea Swimming and synchronized swimming).

Karl will give us a good overview of the plans and goals he is pursuing with Malta. We learn what his vision is, which construction sites are still being worked on and what is necessary for constant further development, especially of water polo.

Thanks for joing us today and now let's have fun with Karl!

Heute im zweiten Teil des Podcast-Gesprächs, wieder mit dem Trainer des ASCD Vuk Vuksanovic, gehen wir auf die Jugendnationalmannschaft ein und was eine Nominierung für jeden im Team bedeutet.

Wie die Ruhr-Games gelaufen sind und wir gehen der Frage nach "Was müssen wir für eine bessere Entwicklung der Schiedsrichter tun" nach. Natürlich alles aus Sicht eines Coaches, aber nichtsdestotrotz weniger interessant. Ist der VAR in Deutschland machbar und warum wünscht sich Vuk den VAR? All das werdet ihr in der heutigen Episode herausfinden.
