India claims first ever gold medal in Beijing

Oh beautiful gold!Abhinav Bindra won the 10m Rifle Shooting competition to capture India’s first gold medal in Beijing.

Thats medal number 20 for India, in it’s entire olympic history. The last gold medal for India had come in 1980 Olympics in Moscow for Hockey. India has since won only 2 bronze and one silver medal.

Congrats Abhinav Bindra on winning the first ever individual gold medal for India.
