Olympic Gold: Singh is King

bindra_300.jpgToday Abhinav Bindra won the first individual gold medal ever claimed by any Indian Olympian. He competed in and won the 10M air rifle event this morning in Beijing. We originally posted about him a few days ago here.

Abhivan hails from Chandigarh, Punjab and is the son of Dr. A.S. Bindra and Babli Bindra. Abhivan has been training since childhood as a shooter and is a holder of the Khel Ratan Award, Indias highest athletic honor. This is his second time at the Olympics.

His family had gathered at the Sector 8 Gurdwara in the three days preceding his competition for an Akhand patth sahib thanking Waheguru for his success and praying for a win. After hearing that his son had won the gold, Dr. A.S. Bindra proclaimed:

My son has proved that Singh is King in a real sense. He has brought laurels for the whole Sikh community and for the whole nation

As an aside – for those of you wondering, as I was, what his name means – it means “quite new”

Also just found a link to Abhinav’s personal blog
