Serena Williams won the gold medal at the Olympics on Saturday morning, defeating Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 at Wimbledon and capping the career Golden Slam.
The victory completed a remarkable run of domination by the No. 4-seeded Williams, who lost only 17 games in her six matches. She went 13-0 this summer at the All England Club, where she won her fifth Wimbledon title a month ago.
She became the second woman to win all four majors and Olympic gold. Steffi Graf completed the feat in 1988.
Williams won 13 straight matches this year at the All England Club, seven at Wimbledon and six at the Olympics.
