Japan and USA to meet in women's basketball finals

Japan beat France 87-71 as Rui Machida continued her historical outing and piled up a record 18 assists in the game. With the Tokyo 2020 Olympics nearing the end, host Japan pulled off an expectation defying performance and are now going to compete for the gold medal game against the USA in women’s basketball finals.

Serbia didn’t put USA in much trouble as they took care of the business behind a double-double by Brittney Griner. USA and Japan will clash for the gold medal with USA being overwhelming favourites, but Japan are at least assured of a silver now, which comes as a surprise.
