Ronjan Sodhi (shooting): India's ace double-trap shooter will be the one to watch out for. Sodhi, who is the first Indian to have defended a World title, will look to set the record straight after missing out on the Beijing Olympics.
Since missing the 2008 Games, when he was a double world record holder and World No.5, Sodhi has established himself as one of the top shooters in the world. He has filled the shoes of his fellow double-trap shooter Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who won the historic silver at Athens in 2004.
Sodhi, now ranked World No.10, has won two gold medals, one silver and one bronze in various world cups and he has two silver medals won at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and gold medal from the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games.
It won't be a cakewalk for Sodhi as he will get stiff competition from top marksmen like Walton Eller and Joshua Richmond of the US and Beijing Games bronze medallist Hu Binyuan of China.
Still good for a medal
Abhinav Bindra (shooting): One cannot rule out the golden boy of Indian shooting. His historic gold medal in the 10metre air-rifle in Beijing inspired the next generation of Indian shooters. Bindra has nothing to lose in London and that makes him a strong favourite for a podium finish.
However, it wont be easy for him as he faces a stiff challenge from his compatriot Gagan Narang, who narrowly missed out the final round in Beijing on a count back. They have shared a healthy rivalry and that may just bring the best out of both here. Veterans Zhu Qinan of China and Hungarian Peter Sidi are just some of the top names who can pose a threat for Bindra.
