Australia took the bronze in the 2008 Olympics and won gold in 2000. The Aussies are coming off a fifth place finish at the 2011 World Championships and a second place finish at the 2010 FINA World Cup.

Russia won the bronze in the 2000 Olympics but has not medaled since and placed seventh in the 2008 Olympics. In the 2011 World Championships, Russia finished third and they placed fourth in the 2012 European Championships.
