The undefeated United States women’s volleyball team will look to continue their dominant tear on Friday night against the Russian Olympic Committee.
The United States is chasing an Olympic gold medal in Tokyo, something the program has not done in the 57 years that volleyball was featured at the Games. In fact, no other country has won so many Olympic women’s volleyball medals – three silver and two bronze – without winning a gold medal.
And if there is a team to do it, this is it. Team USA is ranked No.1 in the International Volleyball Federation’s table and beat Argentina and China in straight sets and Turkey in a five-set thriller.
After their game against ROC, the US team will face Italy on Sunday at 10:05 pm. AND to finish playing pool. Team USA is already guaranteed a spot in the quarter-finals, which begins on Tuesday.
