Rathore shoots on the way to Silver.

After finishing twice at the fourth place in the ongoing athens olympics, India moves ahead into the medal tally. This time, Rajvardhan singh rathore wins the silver medal in double trap shooting event.
Overall yesterday was a good day for India at olympics. They won a silver medal, won mens doubles tennis match, and also won the mens hockey match against south-africa.
Speaking of the hockey match, I would rather say that they won it dramatically. They were trailing by 2-0 and south africa were playing superbly till the last 5 minutes and during those minutes India hit 2 goals to seal the victory. They hit 3 out of 5 penalty corners in the net and a last minute field goal to win the match 4-2. A scrore line of 4-2 gives impression that we played better, but in fact if we look at complete match south-africa had dominated it most of the time.
This time it looks like we may be able to win another medal or two at olympics.
