After three unproductive days, luck again smiled on India as army shooter Vijay Kumar scooped up silver in the men's 25-metre rapid fire pistol.
Kumar ensured a finish on the second highest podium scoring 30 in the final. He shot a perfect five in the first series to take joint lead and followed up with series of 4, 4, 3, 4, 4 and 4 and 2 to grab the silver.
Shooting has lately emerged as the most productive sport for India at the Olympics. India have so far shot one gold, two silvers and a bronze from the ranges since the 2004 Athens Games.
