Abhinav bindra wins gold medal at olympics

At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Abhinav Bindra won the gold for the Men's 10m Air Rifle final after shooting a total of 700.5, thus becoming the first Indian individual gold medallist at the Olympics. He scored 596 (joint fourth) in the qualifying round and out-scored all other shooters in the finals with a round of 104.5.

Till the final shot Abhinav was tied first with Finland's H. Hakkinen but Hakkinen made a dissapointing 9.4 and Abhinav scored a massive 10.8 to do the Unthinkable for many.
