Video - Historic archery win for Zhang

China's Zhang Juan-Juan ended South Korea's domination of women's archery at the Olympics by beating Park Sung-Hyun to take individual gold.

Buoyed by the support of a fervent home crowd, Zhang recovered from an early slip-up to edge to a narrow 110-109 win over the defending champion.

South Korea, who took bronze through Yun Ok-Hee, had won the last six golds in the women's individual event.

Earlier, Britain's Naomi Folkard lost out to Nami Hayakawa in the last 16.

Folkard made a nervous start and was beaten 106-97 by her Japanese opponent despite recovering with two late scores of 10.

The Briton later admitted she had let nerves get the better of her in the early stages.

"I didn't shoot my best, I allowed my nerves to affect me more than I had hoped," she said.

"I pulled it back for the last two ends and felt a lot stronger. If I had started like that then I'd be happy.

"I felt like giving up, but I kept fighting back. In general, I've been shooting pretty well and I've gained a lot of experience."
