On Wednesday at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Xiaoxia Li won an all-China final in women's table tennis, bringing home the gold medal by defeating Ning Ding in five sets, 4-1. The competition was very fierce and included a bit of fireworks midway through.
During the fourth set, Ding argued with the judge over a call of a let, getting very frustrated and yelling after the call was upheld. Ding was penalized with a yellow and a red card as a result of the tiff, awarding a point to Li. In the end, it made little difference, as Li won decisively in five sets.
This is the first gold medal for Li, who was the No. 2 seed in the elimination rounds.
In the bronze medal match prior to the final, Tianwei Fang of Singapore was able to take third place by defeating Kasumi Ishikawa of Japan, 4-0.
