U.S. Women Win Basketball Gold

The U.S. women’s Olympic basketball team captured its fifth consecutive gold medal with a win of 86–50 against France Saturday. U.S. women’s basketball has an Olympic winning streak of 41 games—their last loss came in 1992. “You get a lot of chances to win national championships, but to win Olympic gold is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said the U.S. coach. All 12 players scored during the game, and the team says it already has its eye on the 2016 Games.
