Lee defeated Deniz Cansel of Kazakhstan 27-21 in the final at the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games for her second Asiad gold medal.

Lee, 21, was the Asiad champion in the women's 62-kilogram, but she decided to compete in a heavier weight class at the 2018 Asian Games.

Her victory was also South Korea's second taekwondo sparring gold at this year's Asian Games. On Monday, Kim Tae-hun topped the men's 58-kilogram division.
