Ko wins Rio golf silver

August 21, 2016

Lydia Ko has won silver in the women’s golf in Rio.

The New Zealand Number 1 women’s golfer edged out China’s Shanshan Feng by one stroke.

The win makes her New Zealand’s youngest female medalist at an Olympics, a title which was briefly held by Eliza McCartney for her bronze medal win in the pole vault yesterday.

The 19-year-old world number one wasn’t able to close the gap on South Korea’s Inbee Park.

She dominated the entire tournament to win the first Olympic gold medal in women’s golf since 1900 with a five-stroke victory.

Well done Lydia! I can't believe she's only nineteen. She definately deserves to be best woman in the world at golf.
