USA women take first Olympic 3×3 basketball gold

The USA women’s team won the first Olympic 3×3 basketball title on Wednesday as they beat the Russian Olympic Committee team 18-15 in the final in Tokyo.

Stefanie Dolson of WNBA team Chicago Sky was the Americans’ top scorer with seven points and Kelsey Plum contributed five points in the game that is played into just one basket.

Anastasiia Logunova’s six points for the Russians were in vain.

The Americans were congratulated by IOC president Thomas Bach at Aomi Urban Sports Park.

The downsized form of basketball was added to the Olympic programme in Tokyo in a bid to attract a younger audience.
