SINGAPORE table tennis player Feng Tianwei clinched the final medal for Singapore at the Incheon Asian Games on Saturday, winning a bronze in the women's singles competition at Suwon Gymnasium.

Although she lost 11-13, 11-13, 12-14, 8-11 to China's Zhu Yuling in the semi-finals, she still received the medal as there are no third-placed play-offs in the competition.

The bronze is the second won by Feng at this Asian Games, as she had earlier helped clinch a women's team bronze for Singapore. She had also won a silver medal in the women's team event at the 2010 Guangzhou Games.

With this bronze, Team Singapore have clinched a total of five golds, six silvers and 13 bronzes at the Incheon Games, an improvement from Guangzhou's haul of four golds, seven silvers and six bronzes.
