The world No.1 Niare came back and cut the deficit to 10-11 but Oh held her lead to take the crown by 13-12.

"I've always tried my best, not just at the Olympics but other international competitions as well. In some of those competitions I've come in second, I've felt like I've let people down. Just like any other day I've done my best today and the result is very satisfying. Just getting to this place, everything was perfect," said the 28-year-old Oh.

The bronze medals went to Oussama Oueslat of Tunisia and Milad Beigi Harchgani of Azerbaijan.
