London Olympics 2012 India Won 1st Medal

LONDON: Opening the medals account for India, Gagan Narang on Monday won the country its first medal in the London Olympics 2012. Narang bagged a bronze medal in the 10m air rifle event.

Alin George Moldoveanu of Romania won the men’s 10 metre air rifle Olympic shooting gold medal, while Italy’s Niccolo Campriani was second.

Narang has won numerous medals in the ISSF World Cups, World Championship, Commonwealth Games and the Asiad, besides creating a new world record in 2008, but Olympic glory had always eluded the ever-smiling shooter from Hyderabad.

“I have been unlucky twice (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008), hope I get third time lucky,” Narang had said earlier.
