Gagan Narang becomes first Indian to qualify for London Olympics

The World record holder Gagan Narang once again proved he is a true ‘ratna’ as he bagged the bronze medal in men’s 10m air rifle in the World Shooting Championships in Munich on Saturday, overtaking some of the best in the business – including Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra.

Gagan’s medal ensured India of a London Olympics quota place in the event, the first for the country for the 2012 Games.

In 2009, Narang won a gold and bronze in World Cups and two gold medals in the shooting championship. This year he won the bronze in a World Cup and bagged six gold and two silver medals in the Commonwealth Shooting championships. For the last two years, he also holds the world record of 600/600.
