Glasgow, July 29 - Indian shooters notched up two more medals from the discipline at the Commonwealth Games as Sanjeev Rajput and Gagan Narang clinched the silver and bronze, respectively, in the men's 50-metre rifle 3 positions final here Tuesday.

England's Daniel Rivers won the gold in style, setting a new Finals Games Record (FGR) with 452.9 points. This is River's second medal at the 2014 Games after taking home the bronze in the men's 10m air rifle event at the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre.

Meanwhile, Rajput and Narang finished with scores of 446.9 and 436.8 points, respectively, to increase India's medal tally from shooting to 16 -- four golds, nine silvers and three bronzes.

Earlier, Narang and Rajput had qualified for the finals in second and fourth positions out of a total of eight competitors. Rivers had again topped the qualification.

This is Narang's tenth medal in the Commonwealth Games and his first bronze. The 31-year-old won four golds in 2006 Melbourne, four more golds in 2010 at home in Delhi, the men's 50m rifle prone silver he won Monday and the bronze he won Tuesday.
