SEOUL – China swept up three gold medals on the final day of the Korea Open badminton championship on Sunday, while the host nation managed a gold and a silver.
In the women's singles final, China's Wang Shixian edged Korean Sung Ji-Hyun 21-10, 25-23 in a battle of unseeded players.
Sung had become a crowd favorite after upsetting number one seed Tine Rasmussen in the second round.
In the women's doubles, top-seeded duo Cheng Shu and Zhao Yunlei overcame the second seeded pair Mizuki Fujii and Reika Kakiwa of Japan, 21-16, 21-15.
He Hanbin and Yu Yang gave China the third gold of the day, as they beat compatriots Tao Jiaming and Zhang Yawen in the mixed doubles finals.
Top seeded man Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia claimed the men's singles title over the second seed Peter Hoeg Gade of Denmark.
South Korea got its only gold in the men's doubles. Number one seed Jung Jae-Sung and Lee Yong-Dae needed three sets to get past Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng of China.
It was the Korean duo's fifth consecutive international title, and their first Korea Open in two years.
The victory was also a personal redemption of sorts for Lee, the Olympic gold medalist in mixed doubles. He and his gold medal-winning partner Lee Hyo-Jung were eliminated in the first round of the mixed doubles at this tournament. Lee Yong-Dae battled right elbow pains all week.
