TOKYO, July 26 (Xinhua) -- Japan's Jun Mizutani and Mima Ito won the first ever Olympic gold medal in mixed doubles table tennis here on Monday, after overcoming reigning world champions Xu Xin and Liu Shiwen of China in a seven-set thriller final.

Discontented with the second place finish, Liu burst into tears in the mixed zone. "I can not accept this result. I feel quite sorry for our group," she said.

"The whole team has done a lot in our preparation, but we didn't play our best today, whether in terms of the result or process," Liu added.

The loss handed Japan its first table tennis Olympic gold since the sport debuted at 1988 Games in Seoul. Japan had only taken two silver and two bronze medals in table tennis at previous Olympics.

China had claimed all four table tennis gold medals on offer at the previous three Olympic Games, but it will not be another clean sweep for the sport's powerhouse following Xu and Liu's defeat.

The mixed doubles was making its debut on the Olympic stage in Tokyo, with each association only eligible to dispatch one pair in the event.

In the clash between the tournament's top two seeds, Xu and Liu started well to build a 2-0 lead.

Tying at 7-7 in the third set, Mizutani and Ito gradually gained the upper hand with aggressive attacks, pulling one set back 11-8, and pocketing the two following sets 11-9, 11-9 to turn things around.

"We had a good start leading 2-0, and got the chance of extending our advantage, but we failed midway through the process," rued Liu. "Our opponents maintained their quality performance, especially in the seventh set."

"When it got 0-2, our game's momentum was awful. Getting the third game made our previous momentum change, and we got great momentum," Mizutani explained.

Xu and Liu took the sixth set 11-6 to force a decider, only to see the Japanese duo race 8-0 ahead en route to a 11-6 win.

Xu also regarded the third set as a turning point.

"We made some readjustments a little bit, but failed to grasp our opportunities. They were determined in hitting the ball, especially in the last set, they did quite well in striving for points. We wanted to pull back point by point, but we lacked some changes in our tactics and technique," he commented.

Earlier on Monday, Lin Yun-ju and Cheng I-ching of Chinese Taipei beat France's Emmanuel Lebesson and Yuan Jianan in straight sets to take the bronze medal. Enditem
