Gopher alum, Lindsey Berg, has led her Olympic volleyball team to the gold medal match! They are unbeaten, and have advanced to the Olympic final with a straight-set victory over South Korea today! The team will play for the title on the 11th, Saturday, against the winner of a later semifinal between Brazil and Japan.
Listen to this! The U.S. got a boost for their match with the return of captain Lindsey Berg, who was unable to play during the team's quarterfinal victory over the Dominican Republic due to an injury to her lower left leg.
After the match, U.S. coach Hugh McCutcheon made a straight up point of giving Berg a great big hug!
Hugh McCutcheon, who coached the American men to a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Games, will be the future coach of the University of Minnesota woman's volleyball team.
