JULIAN MANNIX AND TEAM ALEGRIA WIN THE 2014 US OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP
April 20, 2014
Canadian polo player Julian Mannix (the Calgary Polo Club) and his Team Alegria defeated Team Valiente 11-10 in the exciting Championship match held on Easter Sunday at the International Polo Club in Palm Beach, Florida. The game went into overtime, when Hilario Uloa converted a penalty shot in to the winning goal for Team Alegria.
Last December brother Fred made it through to the finals of the Argentine Open in Palermo, but came in second. Fred and Julian Mannix have certainly put Canada on the World polo map by advancing to two major finals in a row.
