Ki wins second archery gold, US 'film' star out

South Korea's Ki Bo-Bae added the Olympic Games women's individual archery gold to her team title victory but America's Khatuna Lorig, who trained archers on hit movie "The Hunger Games", missed out.

Ki defeated Mexico's Aida Roman in the final at Lord's on Thursday.

Another Mexican, Mariana Avitia, claimed bronze defeating Lorig of the United States, who was taking part in her fifth successive Olympics under a third different national flag.

In Barcelona in 1992, she was a member of the Unified Team formed after the break-up of the former Soviet Union, before representing Georgia in Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney four years later.

Four years ago in Beijing, she was already an American citizen.

Lorig trained actress Jennifer Lawrence on how to fire a bow for her "Hunger Games" star turn.

Ki's win meant South Korea took back the title they had lost to China in 2008.
