Rewind four years ago to the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China when both the women's and the men's basketball teams brought home the gold medal proving that the United States remains the top basketball powerhouse in the world.
Now bring yourself back to the present, with a little over a month left until the Olympics start, the pressing question is will there be a repeat? Will both the women's and men's teams bring home the gold medals?
For many years now the women's national team has been dominating all across the world. There is no doubt that this years superstar lineup will have any problems continuing the tradition. With players like Sue Bird, Candace Parker, Diana Taurasi, and Maya Moore teaming up, this women's team will be a force to be reckoned with. There are seven players who have already been to the Olympics and who have won gold but all eleven players were part of the 2010 World Championships team.
