Taiwan wins second taekwondo gold medal at Asian Games
Guangzhou, China, Nov. 20 (CNA) Taiwan's Wei Chen-yang won a gold medal in taekwondo at the 2010 Asian Games on Saturday, the country's second in the sport and sixth overall in Guangzhou, China.

Wei edged out Thailand's Pen-Ek Karaket in the final of men's taekwondo under 58 kilogram division to clinch gold.

The two athletes were tied 2-2 after the regulation three rounds, and when neither scored a point in the extra round, Wei was given the decision on superiority.

Wei had a relatively easy road to the finals. He defeated Cambodian Bouthorn Chhoy 14-1 in the opening round, Uzbekistan's Rustamjon Pulatov 7-1 in the quarterfinals, and Paul Romero of the Philippines in the semifinals, when Romero withdrew with 17 seconds left in the final round after Wei had built a 5-0 lead.

It was Taiwan's second gold medal in the Asian Games taekwondo competition. Taiwan's Huang Hsien-yung won gold in the women's under 46 kg. division on Nov. 17.

As of early Saturday evening, Taiwan had won six gold, eight silver, and 28 bronze medals in Guangzhou. The other gold medals have come in soft tennis, tennis and billiards. (By Oscar Wu and Elizabeth Hsu) enditem/ls
