Abhinav Bindra wins 10m air rifle gold for India

Abhinav Bindra won India's first ever individual Olympic gold medal on Monday with a thrilling come-from-behind victory in the men's 10m air rifle.
Bindra won the 2006 world championships and finished seventh in Athens four years ago.

The gold is also India's first in 28 years at the Olympics. The last time India won a gold medal was at the Moscow Olympics in 1980 in men's field hockey.
