Vietnam's Van Ngoc Tu won gold in the women's under-52kg kurash event on Thursday at the fourth edition of the Asian Indoor & Martial Arts Games in Incheon, South Korea.

Kurash is a Turkic term for wrestling.

The 25-year-old Tu also took gold at the event at the third edition of the games in 2003 in Hanoi.

Tu, who is more famous for being a four-time Southeast Asian champion in judo, thrashed Poorva Manjira (India) 4-1 in the semifinals before taking a 2-1 win over Jumakulyyeva Ayna (Turkmenistan) in the finals.

Tu's gold medal was the fourth for the Vietnamese delegation at the event.
