London Olympics Shooting: Time for Sodhi to deliver in double trapLondon: Gagan Narang`s bronze has given him the "extra lift" he needed and Ronjan Sodhi, one of India`s biggest medal hopes in the Olympic Games, will now look to not just emulate but better his colleague`s achievement when he takes to the range for the double trap event here Thursday.

"It has given the Indian shooting team the extra lift. All of them are excited and everyone is looking forward to doing well at their events," Sodhi has said ahead of his event at the Royal Artillery Barracks.


The cheerful marksman, in fact, felt that Narang`s feat will inspire the entire Indian contingent.

"It is a great lift not only for the shooters but for the entire Indian contingent in London. The mood is quite upbeat and everybody is quite excited," the former world number 1 said.

Though expectations are high from the Ferozepur lad after his exploits at the international level over the last few years, Sodhi is not under any pressure.


"I am feeling quite excited and thrilled. There is no pressure, but there is this responsibility... That people believe in my abilities. I feel excited and thrilled about it," he said.

He will be more than happy if a little bit of luck goes in his favour, but Sodhi has already made it clear that there will be no excuse to offer as far as weather and range conditions are concerned.
