Abhinav Bindra clinches India's first gold

DOING THE NATION PROUD: Abhinav Bindra won the air rifle gold at the World shooting championship, India's first-ever in the sport, in Zagreb on Monday. — File photo: P.V. Sivakumar
ZAGREB: Abhinav Bindra clinched the World Champioship gold, the first ever for the country in shooting, with a spectacular performance in the air rifle final on Monday.

The 23-year-old Delhi lad, a two-time Olympian, went into the final a joint leader with two others at 597, and shot a 102.1 in a nerve-wracking climax to emerge top from a strong field of 122 shooters from nearly 100 countries.

Congrats to Abhinav Bindra.. Gold it is.. in 1980's the western countries boycotted the Olympics due to Soviet Union's attack on Afghanistan.. agar wo participate karte to us time gold nahi aata..

I waited 22 years to see this moment .. the moment of Indian Flag high and National Anthem being sung in Olympics.. its the greatest moment of my life..

Yippie! Feels great to see an individual gold medal for India in Olympics.

Hope this time we win some more medals and break the history of having just one medal in each Olympic.

Atlast! Great going, I really wish these kind of sports would get the same recognition and popularity like cricket, then we would really be winning more medals.
