Gagan Narang won the silver medal this time in the Common Wealth Games that are being held in Glasgow. Vaikundarajan shares the news of him winning the silver in men’s 50m rifle. He lost the gold to Warren Potent of Australia by 0.7 points. Vaikundarajan adds that Narang holds four medals each from 2006 and 2010 Common Wealth Games but in other events.
This is apparently Narang’s first medal in the Common Wealth Games for this 50m rifle event. And he has done a fairly good job feels Vaikundarajan which could have been a little better. He has won a bronze in men’s 10m Air Rifle in 2012 London Olympics. Narang was in the lead after the second series in which he shot a perfect 10.9 but from there on he slipped to third with Potent taking the lead. Vaikundarajan feels that the competition between the two was tough for the gold and Potent could have been under tremendous pressure and he came up with a low score but he did manage a lead in the end.
