Li reached no. 1 in the Women's Epee rankings in the 2006/07 season, coming 2nd in the World Championships that year, but had fallen down the rankings to around 80th place before this tournament.
She came through the tournament the hard way - winning only two bouts in her pool, and fighting eight DE bouts on her way to winning. This was her first win at major Championships (Olympics/World).
