He broke into the Top 10 ranking in the world after consistent showings in the World Cup. He also won a silver medal at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou in the 10m Air Rifle (Pairs) event. He booked his berth for the 2012 London Olympics after winning the gold at the ISSF World Cup in Changwon, Korea. Additionally, Rajput is a Master Chief Petty Officer - II of the Indian Navy.
