Led by star pitcher Yukiko Ueno, Japan’s softball team won its 2nd straight World Championship today, over USA 4-1 today in Haarlem. AUS won the bronze. Good for them. That said, though...that's the same top three order as the last Championships, and they account for 20 of the 27 medals total since 1986. Hard to get diversity in competitiveness when you're not on the Olympic calendar anymore, but here's hoping they figure it out.
