Berg, as team captain and an Olympic veteran, will be looking to inspire her side to the win in the final. However, Team USA will remember losing the final in the 2008 Beijing Olympics against the same Brazilian side. The American players will have to try and leave memories of that loss behind them, although arguably it will give the Brazilians the psychological edge.
However, Hooker could be the key to the United States performing an amazing turnaround against the brilliant Brazilian outfit. Hooker will not have the psychological scars of that defeat four years ago as she did not feature in Beijing, and she has been the inspiration for Team USA in London thus far.
Hooker has scored the second most points in the tournament so far, 147 with 123 of them on kills.
"She's incredible," Berg has said, according to NBC. "She's playing like a vet right now and it's very easy to play with her. And I'm lucky that's who I have to set up because she makes my balls look good."
"Now I'm at this level that I never thought I'd be, and I have so many little girls who look up to me," Hooker said. "It's truly a blessing."
Team USA is undefeated in London so far in the Olympic tournament, and they will be hoping to finish the job this time and claim the gold medal. Berg, who has been carrying an injury since early in the tournament, has said: "But I'm sure the adrenaline for the gold-medal match will kick in and I'll feel perfect."
