South Korea's Son Tae-jin scored a kick in the final second to defeat Mark Lopez of the United States for the gold medal in the men's 68-kilogram taekwondo competition on Thursday.
Lopez fell two points behind as Son displayed superior kicking in the first round of the final. Lopez came back with a score in the second round and Son had a point deducted for passivity, evening the score at 1-1.
A low kick sent Son to the mat in the third round, and when he got up both fighters traded kicks, bringing the score to 2-2. Son then scored with one second remaining to take the gold.
Winning bronze were Taiwan's Sung Yu-chi, who outscored Germany's Daniel Manz, and Turkey's Servet Tazegul, who defeated Peter Lopez of Peru.
Taekwondo awards two bronze medals in each weight class.
