The event took place the morning after the Olympics opened in a nearly empty stadium, following an unprecedented postponement and a build-up marred by scandal and controversy.
With fans barred from venues, only a handful of Chinese support staff were on hand to congratulate Yang after the win.
Christen took bronze ahead of Norway's Jeanette Hegg Duestad, who led after the qualifying round.
