Indian shooting star Gagan Narang wins the 10m air rifle gold

India's Gagan Narang claimed gold in the 10m air rifle by beating his pairs partner Abhinav Bindra and breaking his own world record.

Narang won with 703.6 points, while Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra, with whom Narang won the 10m air rifle pairs gold, was on 698 points.

England's James Huckle took the bronze with 693.5 points.

Narang earlier shot a perfect 600 out of 600 to equal his own world record, shot at the Beijing World cup in 2008.

In the final round he added 103.6 points to surpass the record with 703.6 points.

Since becoming the first Indian to win an individual gold medal at an Olympics when he won the 10m air rifle event at Beijing in 2008, Abhinav Bindra has become a star in India.

He was not initially selected for India's Commonwealth Games shooting squad but on Sunday he was chosen to lead the Indian team at the opening ceremonies.

Ultimately though, Bindra was unable to overcome his partner and double world record holder Gagan Narang who has now won India's sixth gold medal of the Games.

India also claimed gold and silver in the women's 25m pistol singles. Anisa Sayyed scored 786.8 points to win gold and Rahi Sarnobat secured silver with 781.0. They had won the pairs event on Tuesday.
