Britain's Jade Jones was forced to settle for a bronze medal at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix Finals in Mexico City.
The 22-year-old from Wales, who had already secured a quota spot for Great Britain in the -57kg category at Rio 2016, defeated Sweden's Nikita Glasnovic in the bronze medal play-off on impact - after neither fighter was able to make a breakthrough in the golden point round.
It was the second time London 2012 gold medallist Jones had been taken to a golden point round, having lost her semi-final to eventual gold medallist Hedaya Malak, with the Egyptian triumphant by superiority.
Jones, who has won gold in both the Manchester and Samsun Grand Prix's this year, had earlier beaten France's Floriane Liborio 5-0 in her quarter-final.
World champion Bianca Walkden guaranteed at least three British athletes will compete at the 2016 Olympics after sealing a +67kg berth - despite losing on golden point in her quarter-final to China's Shuyin Zheng.
Lutalo Muhammad on Saturday night secured Britain an -80kg berth by claiming gold after beating former team-mate turned Moldovan fighter Aaron Cook in the final.
