JAKARTA, Aug. 22 (Yonhap) -- South Korea defended its gold medal in the women's team sabre fencing at the 18th Asian Games on Wednesday.

South Korea defeated China 45-36 at Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) Cendrawasih Hall in Jakarta for its fourth fencing gold medal at these Asian Games.

The South Korean team of Kim Ji-yeon, Yoon Ji-su, Choi Soo-yeon and Hwang Seon-a came to Jakarta ranked fourth in the world, two spots above China.

Kim, Yoon and Hwang also won the 2014 gold medal together.

In team fencing, each match consists of nine individual bouts for three fencers, with one alternate. Each member of a team faces each member of the opposing team once. A head-to-head bout is three minutes long, but it ends when one team's score reaches a multiple of five. The objective is to get to 45 points first by the end of the ninth bout. But if neither side has 45 points at the end, the team with more points is declared the winner.

Qian Jian and Shao Yaqi of China took gold and silver in the individual event on Sunday, but neither could withstand the South Korean onslaught.

Qian defeated Kim in the individual semifinals, but Kim got the upper hand this time.
