This was the second medal for the country after Gagan Narang opened the tally with a bronze.  Shooting has always been the sports which has been expected to bring laurels be it Olympics, Commonwealth, or Asian Games.  With some bigwigs in this sport failing to make a mark in the London Olympics be it Bindra or Rathore, least was expected from Vijay Kumar even after his constant performances in the past. 



Gagan Narang considered a stalwart in Indian shooting brought the first merriment for the country in London Olympics with a bronze in men's 10 meter air rifle event.  Gagan Narang had everything in shooting to his name barring an Olympic medal.
