China's Zhang Yining defeated her teammate Wang Nan on Friday to win the gold medal in women's singles table tennis at the Olympics.
The host country swept all three medals in the event after Guo Yue beat Singapore's Li Jia Wei to take the bronze.
China has always been dominant in its national sport of table tennis. But it has swept only once before _ in the women's singles at the 1988 Seoul Games.
Zhang was playing for her fourth Olympic gold medal and Wang her fifth.
