China wins second judo gold
BEIJING (AP) China's Yang Xiuli flipped her first four opponents then won in an overtime decision over Cuba's Yalennis Castillo to take the gold medal in the women's 78-kilogram division Thursday, her country's second in judo.
Yang and Castillo fought to a 1-1 draw at the end of the regulation five minutes, then traded ineffective throws to force a judges' decision, which Yang won amid roaring cheers from the home-country crowd.
Winning bronze were South Korea's Jeong Gyeong-mi, who pinned Brazil's Edinanci Silva, and Stephanie Possamai of France, with a waza ari over Spain's Esther San Miguel.
Judo awards two bronze medals in each weight class.
