ZAGREB, 30 November 2019 – The Croatia water polo team has stripped down to their speedos for their annual calendar.
What has become a tradition at the end of the year, the Croatia national team have prepared an end of year gift for their most faithful fans.
The players changed roles from battling it out in the pool in their speedos to posing like models in them for the 2020 calendar. Makeup artist Sanja Agic was responsible for making the players look their best while renowned Croatian photographer Sime Eskinja was in charge of capturing the best shots for the calendar.
This year we returned the ‘barracudas’ to their natural environment, so the photos were taken at the pool, in the locker room, under the showers … we went through everything they do in their daily duties at the pool. The calendar is in black and white, which in particular contributes to highlighting their inherent charm. I believe you will impatiently look forward to every new month of the year, which will be very dynamic for the ‘barracudas. Already in January the European Champs will take place, whilst in July they are off to the Olympic Games. All these dates are specially marked on the calendar so you can follow their activities,” said Ivana Jankovic, PR for the the Croatian Water Polo Federation.
