South Korea's Hwang Kyung-seon won the women's 67kg class taekwondo event at the Beijing Olympics on Friday, beating Karine Sergerie of Canada 2-1.

It's the third gold South Korean taekwondo players have clinched in Beijing.

Sergerie took the lead in round 1 while Hwang, adopting defensive tactics, scored her first point in round 2. The two became more aggressive in the third round and both made a lot of attacks, but only Hwang managed to score when there were 20 seconds left and locked the gold.

The bronze was shared by Gwladys Patience Epangue of France, and Sandra Saric of Croatia.
