Pavlos Kontides of Cyprus 14.11.2012
won its first ever Olympic medal after Pavlos Kontides took silver in the single-handed Laser sailing class at the London Olympics.
The 22-year-old Cypriot's historical win was witnessed by the Duchess of Cambridge, who watched the race off Weymouth, accompanied by the Princess Royal.
Kontides said: "I will only understand how great this is when I return home. I'm very proud."
The medal is the country's first since it started taking part in the Olympics at the Moscow Games in 1980.
Thank you Merja for this nice FDC.
