Abhinav Bindra is India's only solo gold medal winning Olympian. An air rifle shooter, Abhinav dreamed of winning a gold medal for years before he was finally successful at the Beijing Olympics.
Once he achieved that goal he was left without a focus and he stopped shooting for about a year. It was when he lost a few competitions, that he recovered his drive to achieve and is hoping to add to his impressive medal tally at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
