Biography

Gagan NARANG

As a two-year-old, Gagan Narang aimed a toy gun at balloons in a shooting stall in Chennai’s Marina Beach. Twenty-seven years later, he was staring down the crosshairs at the historic Royal Artillery Barracks in London, shooting for a medal at the 2012 Olympics.

He clinched bronze in the 10m Air Rifle event that day and with it, India’s first medal of that edition of the Games.

A four-time Olympian with multiple World Cup titles, the Chennai born shooter has done much to make India proud on the global stage.

Be it his exploits with the rifle or through his famed ‘Gun for Glory’ academy which nurtured several prodigies such as Elavenil Valarivan, Indian shooter Gagan Narang has played a key role in raising the standard of the sport in his country over the years.
