Spain’s Adriana Cerezo beat the second seed, Serbia’s Tijana Bogdanović, in her first-round bout, and went on to reach the final against the top seed, Panipak Wongpattanakit of Thailand, who was also the 2015 and 2019 World Champion. The final was a very close bout, which Wongpattanakit won 11-10, thus becoming the first Olympic Taekwondo gold medal winner from Thailand, improving on the bronze medal she won at Rio. The 2008 and 2012 Olympic champion, Wu Jingyu from China, lost her quarter-final bout to Cerezo and then lost the repêchage to Bogdanović, who won one of the bronze medals, with the other bronze going to Israel’s Abishag Semberg.
