Pupo
scored 34 shots in the final, beating silver medalist Vijay Kumar of
India by four shots. Ding Feng of China won bronze with 27 points.

“I
can’t believe it but it’s true,” Pupo said. “This is the height of
glory for the people in Cuba. This also means a lot for my family as my
wife (Yinnay Cruz) is pregnant.”

It was Pupo’s first major
championship of his career. His only previous victory came at a World
Cup event in Buenos Aires in 1998. At the past three Olympics, he
finished ninth, eighth and seventh respectively.
