Result: Brazil women reach volleyball final

Brazil's women guarantee at least a silver by defeating Japan in the volleyball semi-final.

Brazil's women have reached the final of the volleyball tournament after defeating Japan by three sets to nil.

There was nothing to choose between the teams in the first set before Brazil started to up the pressure when the teams were at 15-15. They won 10 of the next 13 points to take the first set 25-18.

Brazil started the second set the way they finished the first and rushed into a 6-2 lead. A mini-revival saw Japan pull the scores back to 10-9, but the Brazilians were too strong and took the set 25-15.

Japan were still unable to take the lead in the third set and were always a point or two down and when Brazil went up 8-5 it looked ominous for their opponents.

Japan were unable to win enough consecutive points and Brazil took the third 25-18 to wrap up a 3-0 win.
