Canada wins first soccer Olympic gold medal in an intense penalty shootout

Canada won its first women’s soccer Olympic gold medal and its first major international soccer tournament, defeating tournament favorite Sweden in an intense penalty-kick shootout to win the 2021 Tokyo Olympics gold medal. It was the first-ever penalty shootout in a women’s Olympic soccer gold medal match.

Canada goalkeeper Stephanie Labbe came up great performance once again with 2 saves in the penalty shootout, setting up 20-year-old Julia Grosso, who scored the final spot penalty that clinched it for Canada, 3-2.

Sweden captain Caroline Seger had the chance to win the gold medal for Sweden in the 5th round of penalty kicks, but she skied it over the bar to give Canada a chance.
