The Australian men's water polo team have beaten their American rivals in the final Test of a two-match pre-Olympics series in Los Angeles.
The 8-6 win marked a breakthrough for the Aussie Sharks against the Americans as they lost the first Test by one goal and finished with silver behind the US in the World League Tournament in Japan two weeks ago.
For the Sharks, Richard Campbell scored three goals but he credited the team's success to defence.
"Today we really stuck to our guns and played a solid four quarters of defence," Campbell said.
"It's been a tough week. We have had a lot of swim sets, a lot of gym work. So to finish on a win is a positive sign for us."
The Australian women's team also played their US rivals in LA, but lost 14-11.
The Aussie Stingers have two more Tests on their US tour and a training camp as preparation for the Rio olympics.
The Sharks and the Stingers will head to China next month to compete against the world's top teams in the World League Final before the Australian teams are named for the Rio Olympics.
