At the FIBA World Cup in Sydney, the United States women’s basketball team won its fourth consecutive title, bringing the total number of global gold medals won in a row by the team to eight when including their victories at the Olympics.
Breanna Stewart, who was named the most valuable player at the Tokyo Olympics, and A’ja Wilson, who has won the WNBA MVP award twice, led a United States team that did not include Sue Bird or Diana Taurasi for the first time since the year 2000. (injured).
For the first time since 1994, the revamped squad did not include a single player older than 30 years old. This was the last time this occurred before the United States began their reign of dominance at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Since the bronze-medal game at the 2006 World Championships, the Americans have won 60 consecutive games between the World Championships and the Olympics.
In the championship match, the United States prevailed over China, and Australia, the event’s host country, won the bronze medal, forcing 41-year-old Lauren Jackson to call it quits.
After playing the United States to the closest score of any opponent in Tokyo (losing by nine points), Nigeria was not present because its federation withdrew the team due to governance issues. Nigeria played the United States the closest of any opponent in Tokyo. The country of Spain, which holds the position of second in the world, did not make the cut.
