USA basketball team 'really ready', says coach

Friday, August 05 2016 by SNTV
  • The U.S. Women's Basketball team held an opening press conference at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Wednesday (3rd August).

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Geno Auriemma, Team USA Women's Basketball Coach:

    "You know, this is what they train for, this is what they prepare for, whether they're playing overseas or whether they're playing WBNA, this is always something that's in the back of their mind that they want to be ready for the Olympic Games. And whether it's their first time or their fourth time... if the look of them has been any indication these last couple of weeks this team is really, really ready. They're obviously conscious of how hard it's going to be, they're really well aware of how good all the other countries are... and they know not to take anything for granted."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Sue Bird, Team USA Women's Basketball:(Following final week of training in lead-up to Rio).

    "It was such a busy week and a half it's almost relaxing to be here and just know that all we have to do is focus on basketball now... it's really welcoming to be honest... and, again, just really excited and, you know, looking forward to getting started."
