At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, she won bronze.

The 39-year-old American star won the gold medal she had been seeking since Friday in Tokyo. Ross and Alix Klineman, a duo from the United States, won the beach volleyball competition after sweeping the defending champions from Australia.

Ross remarked, “I just can’t believe that things turned out the way they did.” “In some ways, it resembles a fairy tale. That I’m attempting to win a gold medal at the age of 39 is a bizarre and extraordinary thought.”

A win by the American indoor volleyball team over Serbia, in which they won all three sets, meant that they would play for gold later that day.

Here are a few more things that happened on Friday night in Tokyo that you probably missed:

The U.S. Women’s Basketball Team has Maintained their Reign at the Olympics.

The U.S. women’s basketball team wasn’t exactly at its best in Friday’s game against Serbia, and the game wasn’t exactly the most thrilling affair. The final score was never in doubt, as the Americans cruised to a 79-59 victory and a spot in the gold medal game for the eighth consecutive Olympics.

Since 1992, the U.S. Women’s Team hasn’t Lost an Olympic Game.

Breanna Stewart, a standout forward, stated, “This is exactly where we want to be.” Since everything is at stake, we’re going to do everything in our power to bring home the gold.

After their semi-final triumph, the men’s basketball team, led by Kevin Durant (who watched Friday’s game from the stands), will play France for the gold medal.

The Question is Whether or not Nelly Korda can Seal the Deal on Gold.

After shooting a 2-under-par 69 on Friday to follow up her Olympic record-tying 62 on Thursday, American golfer Nelly Korda will begin the final round with a three-shot lead.

Lydia Ko, the silver medalist from 2016, produced one of the best rounds on Friday and is currently in a group of four players tied at 10-under, two strokes behind the leader, India’s Aditi Ashok (12-under).

Can Korda prevent an attack? If she does, the United States will have a clean sweep of the golfing gold medals after Xander Schauffele’s victory in the men’s event.

American boxing fans are hopeful that Keyshawn Davis will finally bring home a gold medal for the United States.

On Friday, Keyshawn Davis secured himself a medal at the Tokyo Olympics by winning the lightweight semifinals with a victory over Hovhannes Bachkov of Armenia.

He is Certain he will not have to Settle for Anything Less Than Gold.

Davis predicted that his gold medal bout with Andy Cruz of Cuba would be a breeze.

Since the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, no male American athlete has won the boxing gold medal. If Davis’ predicted outcome for his fight with Cruz comes to fruition, he will end the losing streak.

Richard Torrez Jr. of the United States of America is another gold medal contender in the super heavyweight division.
