Yulduz Dzhumabayeva of Turkmenistan has received the gold medal as the 2018 45kg World Championships winner after the results were revised for the event.
On Wednesday, the gold medal was awarded to Dzhumabayeva, who belatedly became the champion of the event, which was held in November 2018 in Ashgabat.
Dzhumabayeva initially received the silver medal at the event behind Thunya Sukcharoen, but the Thai athlete subsequently failed a doping test and was disqualified.
