India, who stood 50th in the Beijing Games medal tally with one gold and two bronze, could have easily made the top-40 nations had it managed one yellow metal this time also. Grappler Sushil Kumar and shooter Vijay Kumar fetched silver medals while five-time world champion M C Mary Kom, ace shuttler Saina Nehwal, shooter Gagan Narang and wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt bagged bronze medals.
