As the Tokyo Olympic games come to an end, there is a lot to celebrate. One team in particular that gets to bask in the celebration and rightfully so is the USA Volleyball Olympic Team.
The USA women made history in volleyball play as they won their first Olympic Gold Medal this past Sunday.
Over the course of Olympic play, the USA Volleyball team faced some tough opponents in Serbia and reigning gold-medalist, Brazil to get to the gold. The USA took down Serbia in the semifinals (3-0), before playing Brazil in the gold medal game.
The USA team went on to sweep Brazil in three straight sets to secure the gold medal.
