London 2012 Olympic Games : [Shooting] 10m Air Rifle Men's Final

The 10m Air-rifle shooting concluded with the following results from the Royal Artillery Barracks at the London 2012 Olympic Games,

  1. Gold Medal - Alin George Moldoveanu (Romania)
  2. Silver Medal - Niccolo Campriani (Italy)
  3. Bronze Medal - Gagan Narang (India)
With just five shooting events at the inaugural 1896 Olympic Games, there are about 15 events in the Olympic programme now, which are divided into three different groups: rifle, pistol and shotgun. The rifle and pistol competitions are held on shooting ranges, where marksmen aim at targets at distances of 10, 25 and 50 metres. In the shotgun event, competitors shoot at clay targets propelled at a series of different directions and angles.

Also Gagan Narang became the first medal in this Olympics for India.
