Olympics 2012: Sport should be made a part of school curriculum says Gagan NarangPune:London Olympic bronze medalist Gagan Narang on Wednesday said that sports should be made a part of school curriculum and asked others states to take a leaf out of Maharashtra and Haryana`s books as far as promoting sport was concerned.

"Sport is an important part of the development of kids and hence, it should be made a part of their curriculum," Narang said at a felicitation ceremony here after arriving from London.

Narang was felicitated at the `Gun for Glory` academy by Maharashtra Sports and Youth Welfare Minister Padmakar Valvi.

Olympian Rahi Sarnobat and her parents were also felicitated on the occasion.

Praising the two governments for promoting sports, Narang said that Haryana and the Maharashtra were an example to the other states and they should also imitate their efforts and develop infrastructure.

Heaping praise on the national coaches and rifle coach Stanislas Lapidus, he said that it would not have been possible for him to win the medal without their support.

The former world champion said that it was possible for India to take long strides in shooting provided the youngsters are given proper guidance and get continuous support of the government.

Narang`s parents were also felicitated on the occasion.
