Mihaine Lopez said after the win, 'I feel good being the best in the world and making history.  My career has been long.  Worked hard for this and broke records.  Lopez will be 41 years old by the 2024 Paris Olympics, but he has not ruled out a claim for a fifth Olympic gold.  He said, I do not want to say yes or no but will tell everyone that Mihain is alive.  Lopez's country Cuba is one of the smallest countries in the world.  Its population is just over one crore.  This means that the population of Delhi is also more than that of Cuba.  But Cuba is strong in boxing and wrestling and has been winning Olympic medals continuously.
