Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Australia made Olympic rugby history Monday when they beat New Zealand 24-17 for the first womens‘ rugby sevens gold medal.

World number two New Zealand seemed unsure of themselves against top-ranked Australia despite taking an early lead from Kayla McAllister‘s try.

Emma Tonegato got the equalizer, and Evania Pelite scored for the 10-5 half-time score, with Ellia Green and Charlotte Caslick making it 24-15 scored before New Zealand arestored some pride from tries by McAlister and Portia Woodman.

The Rio de Janeiro Games also mark the first time since 92 years that the sport is played at all at the Games. Rugby is a new sport in Rio along with golf.

Ahead of the final, Canada beat Britain 33-10 for bronze.

While the four Commonwealth countries with strong rugby traditions dominated in Rio, Spain, France, Fiji, and the United States were eliminated in the quarter-finals.

Colombia, Kenya, Brazil and Japan already fell by the wayside in the group phase.
