Olympic mixed doubles champion Mima Ito won her third singles title and first in three years at the Japan national table tennis championships in Tokyo on Sunday.

Reigning Olympic women’s singles bronze medalist Ito teamed with Hina Hayata to win the women’s national doubles title at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium on Saturday and then defeated her partner in the singles final 11-5, 11-9, 11 -5, 8- 11, 11-6 a day later.

The loss prevented Hayata from earning a triple crown following his mixed doubles title with Tomokazu Harimoto. Ito advanced to the finals after her semifinal opponent, Miyu Kihara, developed a fever and withdrew.

Hayata and Ito were doubles runner-ups at last year’s world championships. Ito also won team silver in Tokyo and was a member of Japan’s 2016 Olympic bronze medal-winning team.
