Guo's win seals table tennis medal sweep for China

China has clinched all three medals in women's singles table tennis at the Olympics.
Guo Yue beat Singapore's Li Jia Wei 11-6, 14-12, 9-11, 7-11, 11-3, 11-4 to take the bronze and seal the sweep. China's Zhang Yining and Wang Nan play for the gold later Friday night.
China has always been dominant in its national sport of table tennis. But it has swept all three medals only once before, in the women's singles event at the 1988 Seoul Games.
Guo, ranked No. 2 in the world, struggled at times against Li, the world's sixth-ranked player.
The match featured many fast rallies, with Guo overpowering her opponent with blistering topspin shots to the corners.
