Alix Klineman and April Ross dominated Wednesday’s beach volleyball semifinal, downing Switzerland in straight sets.

The commanding 21–12, 21–11 win earned Klineman and Ross a spot in the gold-medal match.

Ross credited the duo’s focused preparation for their stellar semifinal performance.

“I think we were just fired up,” she said afterward.

Klineman and Ross will face Australia on Thursday at 10:30 pm ET for Olympic gold. Ross, who already has silver and bronze medals from the 2012 and 2016 Games, will look to add gold to her collection and complete the Olympic trifecta.
