There were 22 teams at the beginning of Day 3’s competition. When all was said and done on Saturday, an Elite-eight remained in contention for gold in 17 Open.
Teams competed in their morning wave pools and the top-two advanced from each of the four-team pools, while top-two from the Crossover matches in the pools of three also advanced. If a team won its pool, it was finished for the day and was free to relax knowing it would play at 11 AM or 12 PM the following day. If a team finished second, however, it was sent to a Challenge Bracket comprised of the eight second-place teams to face a do-or-die match.
