USA vs Canada Olympics Softball Preview

Softball makes a return to the Olympics after more than a dozen years away, giving the United States a chance for redemption after finishing as the runner-up for the first time at the 2008 Olympics in Bejing. The Americans had won the previous three gold medals in the event.

Pitcher Cat Osterman is the only player on the roster with gold on her resume, having played in the 2004 Olympics. The 38-year-old left her job as an assistant at Texas State to pursue her Olympic dream.

“I kind of just felt like, you know, I was given a chance, not necessarily for the Cinderella story, but just to be able to come back and be the veteran that I had when I was 21 for my first Olympics,” she told The Athletic.

“I truly felt like if I could get myself in shape, I could give this younger generation of athletes that I’m playing with a good chance at being on the medal stand one way or another, whether it’s just sharing experience or actually pitching. I felt like I had things to offer and kind of felt like it was my responsibility to do that.”

The US will be a tough test for Canada, which has never won a medal at the Olympics in the sport.

Team USA has games scheduled against Mexico and Australia in Tokyo before facing host Japan — their biggest obstacle in the way of gold. The two countries have met in the final of every world championship since 2002. The US has won five times and Japan winning twice.

Japan is also the only other country to win gold at the Olympics, pulling off the upset in 2008.
