    Sorry apologies for the timing first of all

    Carol Anne Chenard will lead the Olympic Final of 2016! Fully deserved for the Canadian team to my eyes, having lead two previous matches, Brazil – Sweden & Brazil – Australia showing acomplished performances. For Chenard it is a first senior final, she took charge of Japan – Sweden in the 2011 World Cup Semifinal, and has refereed two Under20 World Cup Finals. She is joined by her usual team of Canadian Assistant Referees. The team is completed by a CONMEBOL duo

    Rio de Janeiro, 22:30 CET
    Sweden – Germany
    REF: Carol Anne Chenard (CAN)
    AR1: Marie-Josee Charbonneau (CAN)
    AR2: Suzanne Morisset (CAN)
    4th: Olga Miranda (PAR)
    Res. AR: Yoleida Lara (VEN)

    All the best to the team tonight!
