Abhinav Bindra returns home

Onkar Singh in New Delhi | August 14, 2008 02:02 IST

Abhinav Bindra [Images] returned to a hero's welcome in the wee hours of the morning on Thursday.

The shooter, who won India's first ever individual Olympic [Images] gold in the 10m Air Rifle event, arrived on an Air China flight from Beijing [Images].

Bindra's father Apjit Singh Bindra, mother Babli Bindra, his sister Divya Kapoor and brother-in-law Angad Kapoor were present at the airport to receive the Olympic champion.

Bindra, while showing his medals to the huge crowd that had thronged the Indira *hi [Images] International Airport, attributed his win to his family.

"I am very happy. I feel honoured that I have won the first gold medal in the olympics," Bindra said

The 25-year-old has a busy day ahead with scheduled meetings with the President Pratibha Patil [Images] and the Sports Minister MS Gill, amongst others.

I do not know if I would value a medal more than a 200 crore hotel that his dad is giving him -- Rs 200 crore == 50 million dollars right? :) :)
