UK: Turkey's Nur Tatar wins Olympic taekwondo silver medal
South Korean Hwang Kyung-seon defended her Olympic taekwondo title by beating Turkey's Nur Tatar in the welterweight division at the London Games on Friday.
Tatar's advance to final face-off brought Turkey's second silver in the Olympics.
Hwang had vowed to win gold in London after managing only a bronze at the world championships in Korea last year, and the 26-year-old enjoyed a comfortable 12-5 win over European champion Tatar to deliver South Korea's 13th gold medal of the Games.
American Paige McPherson and Helena Fromm of Germany won bronze medals through the repechage competition.
