    The New Zealand women's sevens team is celebrating a special gold medal at the Olympic Games

    The New Zealand women's sevens team is celebrating a special gold medal at the Olympic Games


    Five years removed from a heartbreaking defeat in the final in Rio, they've brushed aside France 26-12 to take gold in Tokyo.

    Portia Woodman - who came back from Achilles and hamstring injuries to attend the Games - says it all washed away at fulltime.



    Fiji claimed bronze defeating Great Britain 21-12 in the playoff.
