New Zealander Hugh McCutcheon remains on course for an outstanding Olympic double.
McCutcheon has guided the US women’s volleyball team into the gold medal match, beating Korea 3-0 in the semi-final.
McCutcheon, originally from Christchurch, coached the US men’s team to the gold medal at the Beijing games.
The US women haven’t dropped a game in pool play either and are the world number one side.
But they have never won Olympic gold – losing to Brazil in the final four years ago.
They’ll play either Brazil or Japan in the final.
