India at London Olympics 2012: Can Vijender Singh and Mary Kom script history?Zeenews Sports Bureau

London: Abhinav Bindra bowed out of the London Olympics by failing to qualify for the final round in men’s 10m Air Rifle event. He thus missed the chance of becoming the first Indian to win two straight individual Olympic medals.

MEDALS TALLY | INDIA’S SCHEDULE FOR DAY 10 | DAY 9 HIGHLIGHTS | PIC GALLERY

The honour now is up for grabs with shooter Gagan Narang and boxer Vijender Singh in action today at London.


Gagan Narang opened India’s account at the 2012 Games by clinching Bronze in men’s 10m Air Rifle event. He will be in action at Royal Artillery Barracks in men’s 50m Rifle 3 positions qualification. If he progresses to the final, he will get second shot at medal.

Vijender Singh has a chance to go into the annals of history when he enters the ring for his quarterfinal bout in men’s 75kg middleweight category event. If the Beijing bronze medallist wins his match against Abbos Atoev of Uzbekistan, he will clinch at least a bronze medal—his second straight in the Olympics.


He has beaten Atoev twice and lost once.

Depending on how his semi-final bout goes, provided he progresses, the hue of the medal may change.

Boxer MC Mary Kom who began her campaign on a winning note on Sunday can also book another medal for India when she faces Maroua Rahali of Tunisia in her 51kg event.
