Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Fiji is assured of its first-ever Olympic medal after the Pacific island state crushed Japan 20-5 in the rugby sevens semi-finals.

Tries from Vateuro Ravounou, Josua Tuisova, SemiKunatani and Jerry Tuwai sent the two World Cup winners into the gold medal match set for later in the day, with Japan only managing a temporary 5-5 equalizer from Teruya Goto.

In the final, Fiji run into Britain who recovered from a poor first half to beat South Africa 7-5.

Tuisova put Fiji 10-5 up shortly before half-time and Kunatani added five further points 53 seconds after the restart, and Japan‘s fate was sealed for good when Lomano Lemieki was sin-binned for a fierce challenge after a Japanese kick deep into the Fiji half.

Japan had upset reigning World Cup champions and top favourites New Zealand in the first group game, and Fiji had then ousted them in the quarter-finals.

South Africa dominated the first half of the second semi with firm defence and an early try by Kyle Brown.

But the British team levelled shortly after the break from Dan Norton‘s try, and Tom Mitchell then kicked the only successful conversion of both semis between the uprights for a 7-5 lead which turned out to be the final score as Marcus Watson made a great late tackle to preserve the lead.
