Indonesia's Maria Kristin Yulianti won bronze in the women's singles badminton Saturday, defeating China's Lu Lan.

Indonesia's Maria Kristin Yulianti won bronze in the women's singles badminton Saturday, defeating China's Lu Lan.
Yulianti, ranked just 21 in the world, came charging back from one game down against the Chinese third seed to win 11-21, 21-13, 21-15.
"It was unexpected throughout this tournament (of winning a medal). I was sure I would lose at some stage," she said.
"My strategy was to make her tired, although today she played more aggressively but I stuck to my game plan in the end."
Yulianti's win denied the Olympic hosts a clean sweep of the medals in the women's singles, with China's Xie Xingfang taking on team-mate Zhang Ning in the gold medal match later Saturday.
Unseeded in Beijing, Yulianti has been the surprise package of this tournament, downing her higher-ranked rivals on the way to the closing stages.
Yu raced to a one-game lead Saturday, but Yulianti drew on her fighting strength in the second, producing precision shots that clearly frustrated Yu.
In the decider, Yulianti took an 8-4 lead, but Yu mounted a comeback to come within one point at 9-8 down.
The Indonesian held her nerve, winning the next nine straight points before fighting off a last gasp offensive from Yu to clinch the bronze.
Yulianti was beaten by defending champion Zhang in the semi-final.
