India Tuesday celebrated as shooter Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore won the country's first medal at the Athens Olympics, making up for a lacklustre performance so far by the rest of the national contingent.

President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi were among those who congratulated Rathore, a major in the Indian Army, for winning the country's first individual silver medal at the Olympics since 1947.

Rathore's father Col. L.S. Rathore, who also served with the 9 Grenadiers, could not be reached for comments as he was away at Jaipur in Rajasthan.
