The United States had no difficulty in thrashing Serbia 79-59 to reach the final of the women's basketball at the Tokyo Games and maintain their long unbeaten streak at the Olympics.
They will take on Japan who advanced to the gold medal game for the first time after thrashing France 87-71 on Friday night.
France, the 2012 silver medallist, will play Serbia for bronze on Saturday.
The US have won eight of nine Olympic golds available since 1984 and are unbeaten at the Games since the last of their three losses came in 1992.
Serbia never looked like causing an upset and were effectively beaten by the end of a first quarter when they trailed by 13 points.
From then the US controlled matters and coasted into Saturday's gold medal match.
Brittney Griner led the US in scoring with 15 points while Chelsea Gray added 14 and Breanna Stewart 12.
US-born Yvonne Anderson impressed for Serbia with 15 points.
"This is exactly where we want to be," Stewart said.
"Everything is on the line. We're going to do what we can to make sure we come home with a gold."
They will take on Japan who continued their amazing run on Friday after Himawari Akaho scored 17 points.
Japan are the surprise packets of the women's basketball in Tokyo.
They were playing in their first semi-final at their fifth Olympics after coming into the Games as world No.10.
Sandrine Gruda led France with 18 points.
