This was another class with no clear favorite. Lee Sun-Hee was the top Korean fighter, but she had no significant international record previously. However, she won all her matches fairly easily, with the closest margin being 3 points. The final was stopped briefly when Norway’s Trude Gundersen kicked Lee in the throat.
