Ji, 19, beat Wang Pengyao, 21, to clinch the gold. Zhu, 19, got the bronze.

Another Chinese rider Jiang Zihao finished seventh in the small final.

The all-Chinese big final emerged when Ji and Zhu earned a one-two finish in the first semifinal, followed by the other one-two made by Wang and Zhang in the second semifinal.
