BCCI doles out Rs 25 lakh for Olympic champ Bindra
« on: August 11, 2008, 09:13:02 AM »

NEW DELHI: It is raining incentives for India's first-ever individual Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra with the BCCI announcing a Rs 25 lakh reward for the shooter for his feat in the ongoing Beijing Games.

"The BCCI will give Abhinav Rs 25 lakh. He was already on our team of athletes whom we were supporting," BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla said.

Bindra created history in the Chinese capital by claiming the gold medal in 10m air rifle event on Monday to give India its first individual gold medal.

yeah but BCCI  is not obligated to pay out the same to achievers in other sports...
this is basically charity thanks to the pathetic state of the other sports organizations

I agree.  Why in the world should BCCI reward someone from other sports when with all the money it has its own cricket infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired with.  Talk about dangling a carrot in front of a mule to draw attention and publicity.  I just don't get this.
