Gagan Narang From India Wins Bronze Medal In London Olympics 2012

Gagan Narang the 29 year old Indian, wins Bronze medal in 10m Air Rifle Event at London Olympics 2012. Interesting thing is that, he was the first Indian to qualify for London Olympics and now he has become the first medal winner. This Bronze medal takes India to 22nd rank in the Olympics medal table. Alin George Moldoveanu of Romania won the Gold and Italy's Niccolo Campriani won the Silver. Niccolo Campriani was the favorite before the finals and Alin George was a complete surprise package. Gagan Narang could have easily been 2nd to win Silver but two bad shots in the middle cost him Silver. Later he came back strongly with the last two shots scoring above 10. The joy was clearly evident on his face as we had a disappointing effort from Abhinav Bindra, who was expected to bring a medal to India. However we are on board now and we can expect more coming our way soon.
