Joop Cabout played with the Dutch male waterpolo team during one of its strongest periods. He joined the 1948 Olympic team (bronze) as a reserve, but played in the teams that on the 1949 Trofeo Italia and 1950 European Championships. The Dutch were heavily favored for a medal at the 1952 Olympics, but were eliminated after a controversial match against Yugoslavia. A life-long member of Gouda club GZC, Cabout won the Dutch title in 1954 and 1957. He passed on his love for water polo to his son, Martin, and his grandchildren.
