Finally, India's first ever individual Olympic gold -- in 108 years of
participation in the games! Abhinav Bindra, center, opened India's account at
Beijing, also ending the 28-year old draught of any gold medal since the hockey
team's win in 1980, by winning the men's 10m Air Rifle final at Shooting Range Hall in Beijing.
Silver medallist Zhu Qinan, left, of China, and bronze medallist Henri Hakkinen,
of Finland, flank Abhinav on the podium during the medal ceremony as the Indian
national anthem plays on.
