Lieutenant-Colonel Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore first stepped in a shooting range in 1998. Six years later, he became India’s first ever individual silver medal winner at an Olympic Games, claiming second position in the Men’s Double Trap at Athens 2004.

 Rathore had qualified for the final in fifth position with a score of 135 and in the final he sealed a historic silver medal by shooting 44 points to end with a cumulative score of 179 and became the poster boy for the Indian army. Ahmed Al Maktoum handed the UAE its first ever gold medal at the Olympics, shooting 189 to equal the Games record.
