Olympics shooting: Gagan clinches bronze

GREATER NOIDA: London Olympics bronze medal winning shooter Gagan Narang will flag off the second Formula One Indian Grand Prix on Sunday. 

Narang, who clinched a bronze in the 10m air rifle event, confirmed his attendance on Saturday night. 

"Sports minister Ajay Maken was our first choice to flag off the race but we were not aware of today's cabinet reshuffle," said an official of the Jaypee Group, the organisers of the event. 

Earlier, there was speculation that actor Hrithik Roshan had been finalised to flag off the race at the Buddh International Circuit.
