The United States water polo team dismantled Spain 14-5 to win their third consecutive gold medal, while captain Maggie Steffens added to her record as the all-time Olympic leading scorer.
Steffens, now a three-time gold medalist, scored three goals in the final game on Saturday, extending her record to 56.
The California native first secured the all-time scoring title on Friday, passing Italy’s Tania Di Mario in Team USA’s dominant win over the ROC.
Steffens was previously the top scorer at the London and Rio Olympics.
