South Korean Oh Hye-ri grabbed a silver medal at the taekwondo world championships on Thursday.
Oh lost to Milica Mandic of Serbia 17-13 in the final of the women's under-73kg at the World Taekwondo Federation World Taekwondo Championships at Taekwondowon's T1 Arena in Muju, some 240 kilometers south of Seoul.
Oh won the world title in the same division two years ago in Chelyabinsk, Russia.
South Korea now has tournament-best eight medals -- four gold, one silver and three bronze medals.
