Pupo wins gold for Cuba

CUBA has scored another gold medal at the London Olympics after Leuris Pupo pulled of a shock win in the men's 25 metre rapid fire pistol.

Pupo equalled the world record with a score of 34 to head off the challenge of India's Vijay Kumar and China's Feng Ding.

Pupo came out of the shadows after Russian world number one Alexei Klimov failed to live up to his superstar status.

Klimov qualified by breaking his own world record but a number of poor shots, including a two, saw him bow out after round six.
