Japan defeated the United States 2-0 to win the gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Japan was led by three-time Olympian Yukiko Ueno. The 39-year-old pitcher started and completed the game to secure the shutout.
The hosts beat the US the last time they faced off in an Olympic final when Japan won gold at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.
With the loss, the US earns silver while Canada takes the bronze medal.
