by the team from Milan La Mimosa, led by the young player

polo performance.

"The perfect match" is the final played by the team of La Mimosa that defeated the Swiss
team Drytech. The winning team has more tactically interpreted the match, ended with a
score of 9 to 5. The initial 3 goals scored by La Mimosa have conditioned the performance
of Drytech that had to chase the score throughout the match. Great performance of the
Argentinian players including Martin Inchauspe (World Champion 2011) who has led his
team to victory.

rugby there was physical contact, but in the Polo it is the same ...... It 's very charming to see
a polo match in the Argentario Polo Club spectacular environment"

teams, comments: 'The Hotel Il Pellicano and the Argentario Polo Club have had a special
partnership since the beginning. Both of them share excellence in their field. It is an honor
