The following article is about the Indian ace-shooter, Gagan Narang.
To be the
first Indian sportsman to qualify for the London Olympics 2012
is no small feat. Moreover, a
Gold in the 10m Air Rifle(Pair) with Abhinav Bindra at the Commonwealth Games, 2010 in Delhi
is a feat unmatched. This ace shooter, Gagan Narang has looked promising since he started pursuing shooting.
Indians need to thank God that Gagan reversed his decision of not participating in the Commonwealth Games in Delhi when he felt cheated after being left out of the list of Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna awardees. He has helped India rejoice with another gold in its kitty with hopes and promises of many more to come from the shooting range.
