Paige McPherson added another tally to the United States' overall medal count, defeating Franka Anic of Slovenia, 8-3, in the bronze medal match for the 67 kg division of women's taekwondo at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The two fighters were tied after the first round, with Anic scoring on one 3-point offensive kick, and McPherson scoring three 1-pointers. McPherson controlled the next two rounds, however. She outscored Anic 1-0 in the Round 2, and 4-0 in Round 3.
