first_img“When I finally won it eight years later, it was “When I finally won it eight years later, it was disastrous on a completely different level. Dont get me wrong – I knew what I had achieved. I had even anticipated the hysteria that followed, but I did not want to have anything to do with it. I hated every moment of the tamasha that followed. I could detach myself while shooting in Beijing, but I just could not detach myself when I came home. “Those were difficult times for me. Quite frankly, I was ready to move on the moment I stepped off the podium. And I wish I had been able to as I would have been in better shape for the next Olympic Games. I needed time to recover, to recharge my batteries. The celebrations that followed were fantastic and quite touching, but I felt they were draining me out.” Calling London Olympics a major landmark in Indian sports, Bindra said the country needs long-term goals. “Our goals cannot be short-term ones. We have to focus on the 2020 Games in Tokyo and beyond. If we are able to strengthen our grass roots, then I am convinced we can hope to bag more medals.” In Athens, Bindra shot 597 out of 600 in 10m air rifle qualification and broke the Olympic record. However, things went horribly wrong in the final. Bindra termed Rajyavardhan Rathores silver-medal winning effort at the same Games “path breaking”. “… However, even as I struggled to comprehend what had gone wrong, there was a huge moment for Indian shooting and Indian sport. I was in the stands when Rajyavardhan Rathore won the silver medal in double trap. It was truly a path-breaking performance. I credit him for breaking the glass ceiling and becoming a pioneer for Olympic sports in India.” PTI AH BS BSadvertisementlast_img read more
