Description: South Korea had won every women's Olympic archery gold medal since 1984. But the 27-year-old Chinese, 27th seed in qualifying, managed to beat a South Korean trio, including defending gold medallist Park Sung Hyun with 110-109 in the final to win the gold, bringing an end to a 24-year-old South Korean dynasty at the Olympics.
Words From the Heart: "I had a dream for the gold. I've been thinking about this every day. I've been preparing for it. I was on a mission. The entire Chinese archery world heaved a sigh of relief. I think it is the result of the efforts of all the Chinese archers. The gold today should also be attributed to the cheers and spectators, and to my confidence and composure."
