The U.S. women’s soccer team’s rocky Tokyo Olympics ended with a bronze medal on Thursday.
Alex Morgan congratulated her teammates after the victory.
“Coming home with that fresh Bronze and couldn’t be more proud of this team! Battling until the end it’s been 40 days on the road and ending on a high makes it all worth it!!” she tweeted.
The U.S. women’s team also thanked Japan for a successful trip.
“Thank you, Japan! In a year unlike any other, the opportunity to compete safely is one we’ll cherish. Grateful for your commitment and hospitality!”
Lloyd became the first U.S. women’s soccer player to score in four different Olympics. It was the 10th Olympic goal for Lloyd, breaking a record previously held by Abby Wambach. Lloyd scored right before the end of the first half and then again right after the start of the second half.
It’s the first time the U.S. team has picked up a bronze medal and the first time the team has medaled since the 2012 Olympics.
