It was a tough opening morning for a pair of U.S. teams: women’s rugby sevens and men’s water polo.

The women’s rugby team played its first match of today’s doubleheader, losing to Fiji 12-7 loss. The U.S. competes against Colombia next.

Team USA’s men’s water polo team lost a quick and gritty match to Croatia 7-5. Croatia took gold in the London 2012 Olympics. The U.S. has a few days to recover and will face Spain in their next match-up.
