Tokyo, Aug. 1 (CNA) World No. 1 female badminton player Tai Tzu-ying (戴資穎) of Taiwan bagged a silver medal Sunday at the Tokyo Olympics in the women's singles competition, which was won by Chen Yufei (陳雨菲) of China.

Chen won the gold medal match 21-18, 19-21, 21-18 in 81 minutes.

It was the 27-year-old Taiwanese player's first Olympic medal, as she was knocked out in the round of 16 in her previous two Summer Games -- London 2012 and Rio 2016.

As of Sunday, Taiwan had won 10 medals -- two gold, four silver and four bronze medals -- at the Tokyo Games, its highest number ever.
