In May 2019 at the 2019 World Taekwondo Championships, Walkden won the women’s heavyweight title after her opponent Zheng Shuyin was disqualified despite holding a 20-10 lead over Walkden. The disqualification occurred because Walkden, in the face of Zheng’s inactivity following her attainment of a ten-point lead, but having also accrued seven penalty points, repeatedly pushed Zheng out of the ring to raise Zheng’s penalty points to ten. This resulted in boos during the result announcement and medal presentation, when Zheng was criticised for falling to her knees on receiving her medal, Great Britain performance director Gary Hall taking issue with her “disrespectful manner”. Walkden defended her tactics, saying: “I went out there needing to find a different way to win and a win is a win if you disqualify someone – it’s not my fault.”
