Jiang Lingling won the fourth gold medal for the hosts on Sunday when the 2006 International Taekwondo Championships China Open closed.

Jiang won 4-2 over South Korea's Seo So-Youg in the final of the women's 67kg match to help China atop the medals tally.

Chinese became the biggest winners of the three-day tournament as Olympic Champion Luo Wei took women's +67kg title while teenager Wu Jingyu and veteran Zong Shaojuan won women's 49kg and 57kg respectively.

In the final of the men's +80kg match on Sunday, South Korean Heo Jung-Syoung whitewashed Chinese Liu Xiaobo 3-0 after defeating another Chinese player Zhu Feng 5-4 in the semi-final.

In men's 68kg, Jamil Al-khuffash from Jordan overcame a hard final to edge South Korea's Lee Won-Jae 5-4.

South Korea finished second in the medals tally with two golds.

The other gold came from men's 58kg by Ko Seok-Hwa, who beat Faris Al Assaf 2-0 on Friday.

Men's 80kg title went to Italian Universiad champion Sarmiento Mauro on Saturday.
