World Taekwondo: Bianca Walkden misses out on gold to Zheng

World champion Bianca Walkden suffers a golden-point defeat by China’s Shuyin Zheng in the +67kg final at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix in Manchester.

With the scores tied at 1-1 after three rounds, Zheng was able to land a head shot in the fourth to win the gold medal.

The second-place finish for Britain’s Walkden guarantees her a top-six world ranking for 2015, which earns Britain a place in the +67kg division for the Rio 2016 Olympics.
