London: Gagan Narang opened India’s account at the London Olympics as he bagged a bronze medal in the 10m Air Rifle event on Monday.

Alin George Moldoveanu of Romania won the gold medal while Niccolo Campriani of Italy won the silver medal.

Narang, a two-time world record setter, had won four gold medals in the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and followed that up with two silver in the Guangzhou Asian Games a month later.

Earlier in the day, as a major setback for India, Beijing Games gold medallist Abhinav Bindra on Monday crashed out of the 10m air rifle event at the London Olympics with a dismal display in the qualifying rounds.
