Bianca Walkden wins taekwondo bronze medal after defeating Aleksandra Kowalczuk at Tokyo 2020

Bianca Walkden won bronze at Tokyo 2020 to become a two-time Olympic medalist after defeating Aleksandra Kowalczuk in the women’s taekwondo +67kg category.

The three-time world champion rallied from a crushing late defeat to South Korea’s Dabin Lee in the semi-finals, giving up a three-point head-kick right on the button to lose 25-24.

In a tense opener, Walkden grasped the lead, and then with 45 seconds left, she pulled four clear.

Walkden held on for a 7-3 win with Team GB loudly applauding her, adding a second bronze medal after her success at Rio 2016.
