LONDON (AP) Zhang Jike of China won the men's Olympic singles table tennis gold medal on Thursday.

Zhang defeated Wang Hao 4-1 in an all-China final. Dimitrij Ovtcharov of Germany defeated Chuang Chih-Yuan of Taiwan 4-2 for bronze.

Li Xiaoxia of China won the women's singles gold medal Wednesday in another all-China deciding match.
