GRR: Eagle Women
The Olympic rugby competition continues tonight for US-based fans with the women’s competition kicking off, and the USA has a real shot at a medal here.
With a fairly decent run of form, the Eagle women bring a diverse combination of speed, elusiveness, aerial ability, and power. Whether they can put that all together remains to be seen, but the indications are they should.
Atlantis is an invitational 7s rugby club whose mission is to encourage and develop American rugby by playing domestic and international tournaments; since being founded in 1986 approximately 1500 total players and 250 USA Eagles have played for Atlantis.

Maybe not so much a rookie, Ariana Ramsey is still listed as uncapped for the USA Women’s 7s team; uncapped, but an Olympian.
Ramsey hasn’t played in the Sevens World Series yet, but did enough to garner a place on the Eagles squad for Tokyo. She says it’s because she knew where she was deficient, and fixed it.
Like the USA men’s 7s team, the USA women had a long travel from Chula Vista, Calif. to Mimasaka, Japan, lasting about a day and a half, but the goal at the end of all that makes handling it easier.
