Chinese double-Olympic champion Chen Zhong snatched her country a second gold in women's heavyweight to close the taekwondo worlds in Beijing on Tuesday.

Turkey and South Korea grabbed the other gold medals as South Korea piled up a total of four gold medals to lead the medal ranking.

The tournament reached its climax as Chen came up to the platform to realize China's expectation of winning the heavyweight gold medal.

Among the thundering cheers and applauses, Chen brushed aside stiff challenge from Han Jin Sun 5-4.

The two players showcased a splendid game of aggression and attacks. It's Chen's first world champion after winning both last two Olympic Games and World Cup.

The bronze went to Tsui Fang-Hsuan of Chinese Taipei and Castrignano Daniela of Italy.

In the men's middleweight (under 84kg), Turkey's Bahri Tanrikulu overcame Tavakgul Bayramo from Azerbaijan 2 to -1, lifting his country the first title here.

Tavakgul Bayramo of Azerbaijan beat Kazakhstan's Chilmanov Arman in sudden death after 5-5 draw to book a berth in the final.

Arman and Park Min-Soo from South Korea earned the bronze.

In women's welterweight (under 67kg), South Korea's Hwang Kyung Seo outpointed Epangue Gwladys of France 1-0 to win her country's fourth gold in the tournament.

Helena Fromm of Germany and Sandra Saric of Croatia settled for the bronze.
