Nanjaappa, who topped the qualification rounds earlier in the day, was top of the leaderboard for large periods before one poor shot sent him catapulting down the field into third place. Fortunately for the experienced Indian he was able to reclaim his poise and edge out veteran Englishman Michael Gault for the Silver medal with two excellent late shots, a 10.9 and 10.7 to bridge the gap to leader Dan Repacholi of Australia.

India's most decorated shooter Abhinav Bindra showed predictable poise to storm to another Gold medal winning performance in the Men's 10m Air Rifle Final at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. There was to be some disappointment though for India as Ravi Kumar, who led the competition through the first 12 rounds was forced to settle for fourth place losing in a shoot-off to Britain's Dan Rivers.

It was Ravi Kumar who set the early pace in the competition, showing tremendous form in the opening set of rounds taking a comfortable lead. Abhinav Bindra soon moved into second place behind his compatriot and the duo started distancing themselves from the chasing pack. However, a poor 13th shot from Kumar, a 9.1 started the slide for the 24 year old, who seemed to lose his poise and produced a number of poor shots back to back to drop down the field.
