Abhinav Bindra is an Indian businessman and retired professional shooter who is a World and Olympic champion in the 10 m Air Rifle event. By winning the gold in the 10 m Air Rifle event at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, he became the first Indian to win an individual gold medal at the Olympic Games. He is the first and only Indian to have held both the World and Olympic titles at the same time, a feat he accomplished by capturing the Gold Medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, after having won the gold at the 2006 ISSF World Shooting Championships. Abhinav won Gold Medal in 2014 Commonwealth Games at Glasgow. Bindra feels that he has no talent and his only talent is that he can practise regularly, diligently and honestly. He said that he had a dream of winning gold medals in Olympics from the very first day he started shooting practice. According to him, most Indian parents do not consider sports as a profession. Bindra wants people to look up sports as a serious profession in India
