Alys Williams competes at the Pan American Games Lima 2019 on Aug. 6, 2019 in Lima, Peru.
U.S. water polo national teamer Alys Williams doesn’t post a lot on social media, only for momentous events like her beloved L.A. sports teams winning titles, or, you know, getting married.
Using the hashtag #WilliamsNoMoore, Williams posted her and new husband Cody Moore’s exciting news. That makes a thrilling and memorable year for Williams, no doubt even moreso than the championships from the Lakers and Dodgers. The only thing missing was a trip to the Olympic Games, but hopefully that’s to come next year instead.
Williams was playing with the national team in early 2020 on an exhibition tour in Australia and the Netherlands with an eye on preparing for Tokyo. With those Games postponed to 2020, Williams has been working out individually while eager for a return to a competitive pool.
“Obviously, it's a bummer the Olympics got postponed, but we're trying to figure out what's best for the team, what's best for ourselves, and what we need in this process,” Williams told USA Water Polo in July. I want to go into this year like I did last year: focused, ready to go, and willing to do whatever it takes to make the team.”
