They've got the size, they've got the strength and now the Australian women's water polo team have got the brains.
The Aussie Stingers gathered at the AIS this week under new coach Sakis Kechagias for their first training camp since the Rio Olympics.
After a disappointing sixth-place finish in Brazil, the Greek native has been appointed to add some European flare to Australia's brute strength.
Kechagias left his role with the women's Greek team because of Australia's burning desire to deliver in the sporting arena.
"I think Australia is the best environment for sport in terms of high work standard and high work ethic and the facilities here are excellent," Kechagias said.
"There a two type of coaches, the systematic coach and those who learn from the players, I am somewhere in the middle.
"The nature of this competition depends on lots of things and we want to create players who can react in different situations."
The Stingers were medal favourites at Rio before falling to Hungary in the quarter-finals and Kechagias said his number one objective is to get Australia back on the podium in Tokyo.
"We have the players and I'm sure we can create a unified team, but it will take time because I'm bringing in a different philosophy and a different way of thinking," Kechagias said.
"Australians are tall bodies and swim very fast, but in Europe they are smaller and think differently and adapt to the moment and that's what I want to bring here."
Stingers skipper Rowie Webster said Kechagias' presence poolside has reenergised the group after the disappointment of Rio.
"We have a really good core so I wouldn't say we're going to throw the baby out with the bath water. At the top level it's challenging, you get one game wrong and you ruin your whole Olympics and that's what happened to us," Webster said.
"They say a change is as good as holiday so it's nice to freshen things up, especially for someone like me in their third Olympic cycle, things can get a little bit bland so it's exciting to have a passionate new coach.
"Europeans play a different style of waterpolo so learning the way they play will help us attack against them. We're going to try and keep that strength and size then really bring in some creativity."
Teammate Hannah Buckling added: "It's new and it's different after three days in my brain is about to explode, but I think if we can get it right we're going to be so dominant."
"Sometimes we've been swum over the top of or out-smarted, if we can bring both of those together we're going to be really dangerous."
