2008 U.S. Women's Olympic Basketball Team

Dominance. That's the word used by eventual four-time Olympic gold medalist Lisa Leslie at the 2008 U.S. team’s pre-Olympic Games press conference on Aug. 6. She, along with her teammates and coaches lived up to that prediction by blowing away their competition by an average margin of victory of 37.6 points a game en route to an unblemished 8-0 slate and the USA's fourth-consecutive gold medal and sixth overall in eight Olympiads. 2008 also marked the third and final Olympic gold medal for Katie Smith, who retired from international play following the Beijing Games.
