USA Water Polo Brings the Olympic Rings to Irvine
Tuesday, June 25, 2019
USA Water Polo brings the Olympic rings to Irvine with the recent move of its headquarters to the city. The grand opening of the organization’s new office was celebrated on Olympic Day, June 23, with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. Featured guests included USA Water Polo Olympian Genai Kerr, Olympic gold medalists Rachel Fattal and Kaleigh Gilchrist, Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner, Irvine Mayor Christina Shea, members of the Irvine City Council, Greater Irvine Chamber President and CEO Bryan Starr.
“The facilities and sports assets that have been developed over the last decade have earned Irvine the distinction as a world-class sports city,” Starr said. “Having USA Water Polo plant their headquarters in Irvine supports a serious bid to build a world-class aquatics center at the Orange County Great Park in order to be a host venue for the 2028 Olympic Games. The Chamber couldn’t be prouder to see the Olympic rings hanging in Irvine.”
