Olympics: China`s Lei Sheng wins foil goldLondon: Chinese fencer Lei Sheng beat Alaaeldin Abouelkassem of Egypt 15-13 to win the men`s foil gold Tuesday.

The 28-year-old Chinese, who beat top seed Valerio Aspromonte and Andrea Baldini, both favourites from Italy, in his way to the final, fought back a late surge from Abouelkassem, and won the last four points to snatch the first gold medal for the Chinese men`s foil.

"I was surprised by my own performance," the emotion-overwhelmed Chinese fencer said.

"Before the Olympic competition started, I did not think about winning the gold, just to fence the match one by one. But I was very confident of myself," he said.

He said his confidence did not falter when falling behind 11-9, knowing he still had the chance to win.

"It did not disturb me, I told myself at that moment that so long as the match is not over, I have the chance," he said.
