LONDON -- Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei of China won the women's doubles gold medal in the scandal-marred badminton competition at the London Olympics.

Zhao, who won the mixed doubles gold on Friday, and Tian defeated Mizuki Fujii and Reika Kakiiwa of Japan 21-10, 25-23 on their fourth match point.

Four pairs, including the top-ranked Chinese team, were disqualified this week for trying to lose their group matches to rig the knockout draw.

Earlier, Russia's Valeria Sorokina and Nina Vislova won the bronze medal.
