Bird, a five-time Olympian, retired from Olympic basketball after earning her fifth Olympic gold medal in the Tokyo 2020 women's basketball final against Japan on Sunday.

She helped Team USA overtake the Japanese team with seven points, three rebounds, three assists and three turnovers.

Over the course of the Tokyo Games, Bird scored 33 points, 15 rebounds, 35 assists, eight turnovers and seven steals, according to the Olympics website.

Bird now has a combined total of nine Olympic and FIBA (International Basketball Federation) World Cup medals, "which is the most of any basketball athlete, male or female, across the globe," according to the Team USA website.

She is one of 11 players who have earned an Olympic gold medal, FIBA World Cup gold medal, a WNBA (Women's National Basketball Association) title and a NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) title, the Team USA website says.

The U.S. team's win against Japan at Tokyo 2020 marked the country's seventh consecutive Olympic gold medal in the women's basketball tournament.

Team USA's Brittney Griner, who scored 30 points in the final match, said: "Seven in a row, I mean that's just amazing. That just goes to show everything USA basketball's about.

"Japan's hard to guard. They can shoot it anywhere on the court. They're a tough guard, they're a really good team. I'm just glad we've got this gold," Griner added, the Tokyo 2020 website reported.

Taurasi, who now has five Olympic gold medals in basketball, said: "What can you say? It's 20 years of sacrifice, of putting everything aside and just wanting to win.

"It's never easy playing on this team [with] the pressure, but this group found a way to win and I'm just happy this group got to enjoy it," she said, the Olympics website reported.
