Having floored five-time world champion and Japanese flagbearer Kyoko Hamaguchi in a controversial semi-final, Wang Xu surprised herself again by winning the final. 'I am absolutely amazed that I have won. I never expected to win gold. Before the competition started, I just wanted to play to my standard. I told myself I would make sure I came home without regrets. I am so happy to have won. This gives me a lot of confidence when the Olympics next comes around. I am planning to compete in my hometown and I will try my best to win again.'
