Holguín Leuris Pupo, Olympic champion of London 2012, secured his ticket to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 after winning the gold medal in the Shooting Championship of the Americas, held in Guadalajara, Mexico.
In his Facebook profile, Pupo thanked those who supported him in one way or another to achieve that victory in the 25 meters rapid-fire pistol event.
Pupo congratulated his teammate Jorge Félix Álvarez and said that they both are making a way to Tokyo 2020.
“Both of us will be present there for our effort and sacrifice,” he said, and praised his trainer Meinardo Torres, who encourages them to continue with their innovations.
Finally, he said that the members of the national shooting sports team will continue to achieve success despite the limitations.
In that Championship of the Americas, the main goal of Cuban shooters was to obtain places for the Pan American Games of Lima 2019 and the Olympic Games.
