India’s First Medal on Olympics 2012
India’s First Medal on Olympics … Gagan Narang gets a Bronze Medal in 10M Air Rifle.
Gagan Narang today won bronze medal in the 10m air rifle event at London Olympics.
Earlier in the day, Beijing Games gold medallist Abhinav Bindra crashed out of 10m air rifle with a dismal display in the qualifying rounds. However, compatriot Gagan Narang had kept alive India’s hopes by advancing to the medal round.
Bindra, who scripted history four years ago by becoming the country’s first-ever individual gold medallist in the Olympics, shot 594 out of 600 to finish a shocking 16th out of 47 competitors and lost the golden chance of becoming the world’s first shooter to win two successive Eagold medals at the mega event.
