Lisa Leslie and the US women's basketball team were once again too good for Australia at the Olympics. Leslie capped off her illustrious Olympic career with a fourth straight gold medal, scoring 14 points in a 92-65 victory against Australia today. She joined former teammate Teresa Edwards as the only basketball players ever to win four gold medals.
"I visualized having a fourth gold medal," Leslie told NBC. "I've been able to represent my country since I was 24 years old. It's been just awesome." Russia took the bronze medal, beating China 94-81 as Becky Hammon scored 22 points. The Aussies have now lost to the Americans in the gold medal game in the past three Olympics, with all three defeats coming by double-digit margins.
