Fijiana wins Olympics Bronze medal

The Fijiana 7s created history after winning their first ever Olympic medal, when they beat Great Britain 21-12 in the bronze medal match.

Fijiana fought right to the end in the semis against New Zealand which ended in a sudden-death extra-time, before New Zealands Broughton touched down to win one of the all-time great sevens matches beating Fijiana 22 -17

Coming into the Bronze medal match, Fijiana displayed an impressive performance to deny team Great Britain third place.

Great Britain dominated possession in the first half but found themselves 14-0 down as Alowesi Nakoci scored two stunning tries.

Megan Jones went over to give Team GB hope, but Reapi Ulunisau scored her eighth try of the tournament to give Fijiana what proved an unassailable lead.

Jones again touched down in the closing stages, but it was nothing more than consolation.
