Indian shooter Gagan Narang won the bronze medal in the 10 meter air rifle event at the World Cup in Beijing on Sunday.

According to information received here, Narang shot a total of 700.3 points (597 qualifying and 100.3 finals) to win his sixth World Cup medal.

The gold went to Russian Denis Sokolov with a total score of 701.3 (597 qualifying + 104.3 final) and the silver went to Chinese Qinan after he shot 701.2 (598 qualifying + 103.2 final).

Narang was disappointed to miss out on the gold medal by small margin.

"It was close final round and I was disappointed to miss out on the gold medal. But a medal is always a medal and it will boost my confidence in the forthcoming world cups. This a big year for Indian sports and hopefully I can perform well in the Commonwealth Games as well," he said.
