Abhinav Bindra made India proud

Abhinav Bindra won a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games making us all so proud of him. Congrats Bindra, you are our hero!

This is one of those awards that hold a great reputation for generations. How every time from now when we talk about Olympics, there's be the mention of his name and his gold medal. How his children and grandchildren and great grandchildren... will say with pride that they are his children!

It's sad that we don't give that much importance to Olympics as it deserves. This includes even me as even I don't tend to write much about this and other sport events and sports. Abhinav Bindra has inspired me to pay attention to all the various types of sports.

Wish I could do something to honour the pride of my country too.

Abhinav's heroics seem to have inspired Indian boxers. But will they eventually erase the tag of One medal country on us?

I think they will. Most importantly, once we get over a One Sport [Cricket} Tag and start giving equal importance to all the other sports, show an equal amount of interest in them, offer the same kinda training... it will provide enough fuel for success to not just the Indian boxers but other sportspersons as well.
