Olympic silver medallist shooter Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is not unduly worried with his recent form slump and is confident of peaking at the right time to settle for nothing less than the gold at the Beijing Games.
"I am happy that my form is not great at the moment and my hard work would definitely pay in the coming few tournaments so that the Olympics come at the right moment," said Rathore.
The 34-year-old Armyman, however, admitted he needed to work harder to meet the country's high expectations from him.
"After winning a silver medal, I feel that I need to bag the gold for the country and that would do justice to my career," he told reporters last night after a practice session at the Indian Masters.
Rathore said he would leave for a training stint abroad to get in good nick before the Olympics and added he had been working hard on his fitness and synchronisation.
"For a shooter, the co-ordination of hand and eyes has to be just perfect, and that is what I have been trying to attain," said the world's third best double trap shooter.
