The team of the Black Ferns that consecrated the Gold in the Olympic Games

New Zealand won the Gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after beating France 26-12 in the end. With a roster full of figures, the New Zealanders took revenge on Rio 2016.

Captained by Sarah Hirini The Black Ferns Sevens had seven silver medalists in games played in Brazil five years ago: Kelly Brazier, Gayle Broughton, Theresa Fitzpatrick, Tyla Nathan-Wong, Ruby Tui, Portia Woodman and Michaela Blyde.

For its part, Tui, Woodman and Blyde, who traveled as a reserve to Rio in 2016, arrived with the parchment of having been chosen by World Rugby, cas the best players of the seasons, in previous editions of the World Tour.

The golden story had for Risaleaana Pouri-Lane a new chapter in Tokyo 2020. The Bay of Plenty player completed an unprecedented Olympic double, by winning the Youth Olympic Games – she was captain of the team that won gold in Buenos Aires in 2018 – and the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

With a flawless ride since their Silver medal in Rio, the Black Ferns Sevens have had an overwhelming dominance on the World Tour, winning 16 of the 22 World Series tournaments, and gold at Rugby World Cup Sevens and the Commonwealth Games.

Without a doubt, after five years of dominance, New Zealand girls have managed to crown the sporting process in the best way at Tokyo 2020.

New Zealand Squad:

Portia Woodman, Sarah Hirini (captain), Ruby Tui, Tyla Nathan Wong, Theresa Fitzpatrick, Stacey Fluhler, Michaela Blyde, Alena Saili, Risaleaana Pouri-Lane, Kelly Brazier, Gayle Broughton, Shiray Kaka.
