GWANGJU, July 13 (Yonhap) -- Rhythmic gymnast Son Yeon-jae won the gold medal in ball at the Universiade on Monday, her third title at the competition.

Son scored 18.250 points to clinch South Korea's first gold medal in the apparatus at Kwangju Women's University Gymnasium.

Ganna Rizatdinova of Ukraine followed with 18.100 points and Maria Titova of Russia was third with 18.000 points.
