Women’s Olympic Basketball Stats Now on Basketball Reference

14th May 2021

We are happy to announce the latest addition to Basketball Reference: we now have women's Olympics statistics back to 1976, the first Summer Olympics to have a women's basketball tournament. This complements our existing men's Olympic basketball data.

In the Teams section of our International index, a table has been added with each country's historical performance at the Olympics, in case you wanted to clear up how dominant the United States' women's team has been in this competition. There is also a women's Olympics seasons table that shows who got which medal in each competition.

We also have box scores for every women's Olympic match, from the first round robin games in the 1976 Olympics to the 2016 gold medal game between the United States and Spain. Players who participated in the Olympic Games, such as Lauren Jackson and Diana Taurasi, now have international pages.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us through our feedback form.
