Anastasija Zolotic first American woman to win taekwondo Olympic gold
Anastasija Zolotic defeated Tatiana Minina 25-17 in the women's 57-kg taekwondo division final to win gold for Team USA at the Tokyo Olympic Games on Saturday.
Of note: The 18-year-old is the first American woman to win gold in taekwondo. "It really hasn't sunk in yet," she told reporters after her win. Zolotic's was the fourth U.S. gold of the day, after swimmer Chase Kalisz, shooter Will Shaner and fencer Lee Kiefer.
