The first final of the day saw Anastasija Zolotic of the United States of America and OzodaSobirjonova of Uzbekistan fight in the junior female -52kg. The first round exploded into action with Zolotic landing a front kick to the trunk within the first two seconds. However, Sobirjonova responded quickly by landing a front kick to the trunk and then to the head to put her 2-5 up. Zolotic made the scores level once more with an incredible reverse hook kick to the head. The American then began to stamp her authority by landing a series of kicks and ended the round 14-5 up. If possible the second round was even more exciting with both athletes landing a series of kicks on one another, many of which were to the head. But it was Zolotic who took a narrow 24-20 lead into the third round. Zolotic looked to secure the gold medal by landing an early front kick to the trunk. Sobirjonova fought back valiantly by first landing a front kick to the head and then forcing her opponent out of the boundaries on a number of occasions to make the score 27-26. Zolotic looked to have landed the killer blow with a kick to the trunk, but Sobirjonova responded seconds later by kicking her opponent in the trunk and then forcing Zolotic into conceding a gam-jeom. Subsequently, the fight was taken to a golden point round. Both athletes deserved to win the gold in what was probably the most exciting and closely contested final of the tournament so far. However, it was Zolotic who claimed the gold with an emphatic front kick to the head.

The bronze medals were won by Vanessa Beckstein of Germany and Gabriela Briskarova of Slovakia.
