Turkey's women's basketball team claimed the winning title in their first Olympic face-off against Angola with a score of 72 to 50.
Turkey will be represented in team sports for the first time in 52 years, with both the women’s volleyball and basketball teams winning Olympic berths.
The team managed to qualify for the Olympics for the first time in its history after surviving a tough qualification tournament last month, joining the national women’s volleyball team in ending a 52-year jinx.
