Abhinav Bindra wins 10m air rifle gold

India's first ever gold medal in Olympics after 1980 was won by Abhinav Bindra in the men's 10 metres air rifle event.

Bindra was fourth after qualifying but had a brilliant final round and even hit a near perfect 10.8 on his last visit to pull in front of Henri Hakkinen of Finland, who dropped to bronze with a poor final shot of 9.7.

It is a proud moment for India and three cheers to Abhinav.
