Olympics: Singapore women's table tennis team win bronze medal
Singapore's table tennis women erased their semi-final heartbreak by winning the Olympics team bronze on Tuesday.
The 2008 silver-medallists defeated South Korea 3-0 in the third-place play-off in London, adding a bronze to an earlier one won by Feng Tianwei in the women's singles.
Feng got the ball rolling with a 3-1 (11-9, 11-8, 4-11, 13-11) win over defensive player Kim Kyung Ah.
Then it was veteran Li Jiawei's turn to shine, when she beat Seok Ha Jung 3-1 (11-5, 11-8, 6-11, 11-8).
Li teamed up with Wang Yuegu to seal the bronze in the doubles, defeating Seok and Dang Ye Seo 3-1 (11-9, 11-6, 6-11, 11-5).
Said Li, who was playing in her first singles match of the campaign: "I think today's match was the most special of the whole Olympics. It was a do-or-die tie. We were well-prepared tactically to meet South Korea."
