Three swimmers doubled their gold medal tallies at Taipei 2017 as finals continued at the Taiwan Sport University Arena.

Japan's Kanako Watanbe won the women's 100 metres breaststroke title early in the Universiade and managed to repeat the feat over 200m.

She turned for the final 50m in second place, but came through to take the win in a time of 2min 24.15sec.

Watanabe just touched before South Africa’s Tatjana Schoenmaker, who won silver in 2:24.61.

Despite missing out on the gold, Schoenmaker’s second place finish earned her country their first medal of the Universiade.

Russia's Mariia Temnikova took the bronze in 2:24.73, with the United States' Kayla Brumbaum, who led heading into the final 50m, missing out on the podium in fourth.

Italy's Gregorio Paltrinieri made it a distance double as he backed up his 1,500m freestyle triumph by winning the 800m in 7:45.76.

He led home the Ukrainian duo of Mykhailo Romanchuk and Sergii Frolov, who completed the podium places in times of 7:46.28 and 7:51.06.

It was then the turn of American swimmers to take centre stage, with Ryan Held claiming the men's 100m freestyle title to add to his 50m crown.

The women's bronze medal contest was a closer affair, with Russia eventually earning a 3-2 win over Italy.

France beat Germany 4-1 to take the second bronze.

Japan's 10th judo gold was won by their men's team, as they defeated Russia 4-1.

Poland fell to a 5-0 defeat to the Brazilian team in the first bronze medal tie, while Germany edged Italy 3-2 in the second.

The Italians were able to celebrate fencing success today, with their women's team foil squad achieving a 45-25 win over Russia.

Bronze was earned by Poland, as they beat Hungary 45-31.

Russia secured gold in the men's team epee final, edging Hungary 31-30 in the closely fought competition.

The podium was completed by South Korea, as they secured a 45-40 win over Japan.

South Korea proved the dominant force on the final day of archery finals, as the country ended with all but one of the 10 golds available at the Universiade.

Their men's recurve team clinched a 6-0 win over hosts Chinese Taipei, while Russia beat Kazkahstan 5-1 for the bronze.

South Korea were given a tougher match in the women’s final, but emerged as 5-4 winners over Chinese Taipei.

Russia sealed a comprehensive 6-0 win over Italy in the bronze medal clash.

A hat-trick of team victories was completed when South Korea's mixed team beat France 5-4, while Mexico overcame Japan by the same score to complete the podium.

Archers then turned their attention to individual finals, with South Korea's Lee Seung-yun beating Russia's Arslan Baldanov 6-0 to take the men's title.

The two men were joined on the podium by another South Korean, with Kim Woo-jin winning against Hungarian opposition for bronze.
