The mix zone at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium was showered with beer moments after the U.S. women’s water polo team advanced to the semifinals with a 13-3 victory over Brazil.

The beer dripped down from the ceiling while coach Adam Krikorian and the American players were talking to the press, but it looked as if everyone managed to dodge the falling beverage.

A mix-zone worker speculated that a fan must have spilled their beer in the stands above, and towels were quickly brought in for the floor.

The Olympic Aquatics Stadium is a temporary facility.

Krikorian jokingly moved under the damp spot in the ceiling as if hoping for more, and then got his phone out to take a picture of the scene.
