LONDON (Reuters) - China's Wu Jingyu won the women's flyweight (-49kg) taekwondo gold medal at the London Games on Wednesday, beating Brigitte Yague Enrique of Spain in the final.
Wu, the defending champion from the Beijing Olympics, overwhelmed the Spaniard from the outset with snapping kicks to the midsection and head, and finished an 8-1 winner.
After bowing to her opponent when the clock ran down, Wu jumped into her coach's arms before taking a Chinese flag thrown from the crowd and doing a lap of honour.
Thailand's Chanatip Sonkham and Lucija Zaninovic of Croatia won bronze medals through the repechage competition.
