Only 25 years old but World champion Abhinav Bindra clinched India’s first ever individual gold medal at the Olympics, winning 10m air rifle event at the Beijing Games.
Abhinav Bindra qualified fourth for the event, shot an overall score of (596+140.5) 700.5 in a thrilling finale which went right down to the last shot.
Abhinav Bindra historic feat makes him India’s first-ever individual gold medallist, bettering the silver medal feat of double trap shooter Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore in Athens 2004.
I hope he is besieged by endorsement offers after this. He has done the country immensely proud.
