Yipee….. Ever since, India started competing in the “Summer” Olympics in 1900, we have never won an individual Gold medal. All that has changed today, the 11th of August 2008 when Abhinav Bindra won Gold in the Men’s 10m Air Rifle Final…. 🙂

It feels really great.. And there was no feeling that could replace the feeling when I heard the Indian National Anthem during the Medal Presentation—> Watch Here
Well I’m really happy that the Indian people have a role model whom they can live up to… not like the Indian cricket team players…. 😡 … And in case, you didn’t realise it, I hate cricket.. 😛 All I hope is that Abhinav doesn’t fade into the limelight like Lt. Colonel Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, the Silver Medal winner at the 2004 Athens Olympics….
So Cheers to Abhinav and the billion Indians….
And all the best to the Indian Contingent at the Olympics…
