Talking to NDTV after winning the bronze, Yogeshwar Dutt expressed hope that Sushil Kumar would land a medal and of a different colour from his bronze. Dutt also underlined the fact that he has achieved what he had set his eyes on, an Olympic medal.
Olympic bronze medallist Mary Kom told NDTV that she fought with a free mind in the London Olympics and that she will try and come back harder in the next Olympics, hinting perhaps that she's ready to box for many more years to come.
Indian shooter Gagan Narang won the first medal for the country by winning a bronze medal in the 10m Air Rifle event. He said, "A medal was running away from me for quite some time. Finally, I ran faster and caught up with my medal."
