India has won 8 Olympic Gold medals in Hockey but the wait for an individual Olympic Gold ended 61 years after independence. Abhinav Bindra wrote himself into the history books at Beijing with the 10m Air Rifle Gold and he still remains India’s only individual Olympic champion. Fellow Olympic medalists Sushil Kumar and Vijender Singh credit Bindra for instilling a new belief in India’s Olympic sportspersons.
