1 gold medal for 1 billion


Finally an Indian wins a gold medal in an individual event at Olympics. Abhinav Bindra who has promised good results for quite some time gets India its first Olympic individual gold.

It's a good day and also a sad day because it also reminds us of our pathetic sports record. How can 1 billion people not have won an individual gold medal in any event at the Olympics so far.

Watch whole country go crazy on this just to put this perspective. An athlete from USA called Michael Phelps is targeting 8 gold medals at this Olympics.

I guess some one had to bring the first one and I congrats Abhinav for it hopefully many more to follow.

Come on Raj Varthan Singh Rathore another gold please.
