ALAMO RENT A CAR AND U.S. WATER POLO TO HOST PRE-OLYMPIC COMPETITION

ALAMO RENT A CAR AND U.S. WATER POLO TO HOST PRE-OLYMPIC COMPETITION
 The United States Men's Water Polo team's final stateside appearance before the '92 Olympic Games will be in Southern California at the first-ever Alamo Cup. The teams of Canada, Italy, the Commonwealth of Independent States and the United States will come together for a weekend that's sure to deliver spectacular, pre-Olympic water polo action, June 5-7 at Alamo Cup '92.
 United States Water Polo Inc. (USWP) in conjunction with sponsor Alamo Rent A Car will host Alamo Cup '92 at three separate sites: El Toro High School, El Toro, Calif.; Corona Del Mar High School, Newport Beach, Calif.; and a site yet to be determined in San Diego. The three locations were chosen to allow as many water polo fans as possible a chance to see such high caliber international water polo play. The event will be televised on Sports Channel America.
 "We wanted to start this tournament in a first-class fashion. We are extremely fortunate that a sponsor of the stature of Alamo Rent A Car chose to lend its support. Through its sponsorship we will be able to televise the event and will be able to provide coaching and player clinics to further develop the sport. Our fans, of course, will be able to see top-level competition each year," said Rich Foster, president of United States Water Polo.
 Alamo Cup '92 will be the first major water polo tournament to be held in the United States on an annual basis. This inaugural tournament will pit two of Europe's elite teams against the top Pan American teams. It is hoped that the tournament will expand to eight teams within two years.
 "The countries in our hemisphere are at an inherent disadvantage. Over the last decades, water polo has been dominated by the Europeans. All of the major tournaments are held in Europe and this has been expensive for the Pan American countries in terms of the expense of travel and unfair to their fans in that they do not get to witness the top-level competition," explained Foster. "Despite this, the United States has earned the silver medal in the last two Olympics and is currently ranked No. 1 in the world, having won the FINA Cup last summer. We believe that the United States deserves to host an elite tournament on a regular basis as we organized the Alamo Cup to allow Pan American countries to compete against top European teams, but on American soil."
 The U.S. Men's Olympic Team will be named following the competition on Saturday, June 6.
 All session passes are $12 for adults and $8 for students and children. The session passes can be purchased by sending a check or money order to USWP, 201 S. Capitol Ave., Suite 520, Indianapolis, IN 46225. Be sure to indicate a forwarding address and telephone number. Session-pass orders must be received by May 22, 1992.
 A coaching and player clinic is scheduled for Saturday, June 6, at Corona Del Mar High School, starting at 10 a.m. Top players and coaches from all four teams will be featured guests.
