Lai won the Men's Individual and Lin won the Women's Individual tournaments to take double gold.

Unfortunately Vanessa Wong lost her semi-final against Osawa and then lost to Sarah Yu of Canada by 1.5 points to miss out on a great opportunity. Sadly, very late in the latter game she answered a smallish ko threat rather than living in her opponent's corner, which cost her about 10 points and a Bronze medal.

Congratulations to her.
