Chris Humbert continues to chase an Olympic medal and that's why the two-time Olympian is still leading the U.S. men's water polo team, which defeated Brazil, 8-4, in the UPS International Cup Thursday at Corona del Mar High. The U.S. (2-0) advanced to the semifinals in its final tune-up for the Pan American Games in Canada later this month. A victory there would automatically qualify the U.S. for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. "I know we have some great talent here," Humbert said.
