Vivianne Miedema sets Olympic scoring record, eyes USWNT upset


At her first-ever Olympic Games, Dutch soccer player Vivianne Miedema has broken Christine Sinclair’s record for most goals scored at a single Olympic tournament — and we haven’t even arrived at the knockout stage.

The Canadian legend, who is also competing in Tokyo this year, had a record of six goals in a single Olympic campaign.

But Miedema has surpassed Sinclair’s record with eight goals in three games.

After the Netherlands beat China 8-2 in their final group stage match, the team tallied a whopping 21 goals across three fixtures.

They also finished at the top of their group.

Now Miedema has her eyes set on the USWNT. The teams are set to face off in the quarter-finals of the Olympic women’s football tournament on Friday after the USWNT drew 0-0 with Australia.

The two teams previously met in the 2019 World Cup, which the USWNT won 2-0.
