Abhinav Bindra won the gold medal in the 10-metre air rifle at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra recently took to social media and shared a motivational message for the Paris-going Indian contingent for the 2024 Olympics.

Indian shooters have secured 21 out of 24 possible quotes for the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympics. However, after the end of the qualification process, NRAI conducted trials, and the best-performing shooters were selected to represent the nation at the Olympics.

Thus, before the sporting mega fest, former Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra had a message to share with the younger generation. Bindra initially congratulated all the shooters who managed to secure a spot in the Paris-going contingent.

He wrote, “Congratulations to all the Indian shooting athletes headed to Paris 2024! To our quota winners who didn’t make the team this time- your efforts ensured India’s representation in Paris, and this period, though tough, does not define your incredible talent or journey.”

He later wrote about the upcoming selection process, which will be conducted by the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI). Abhinav Bindra stated that people should back the athletes, as their support will help them perform better. Moreover, he also stated that the selection process will be fair and that the best shooters will be a part of the 2024 Paris Games.

Abhinav Bindra added, “It’s essential that our support systems continue to back and support these athletes during this time. They are a crucial part of our sport’s success and future. The selection process was fair and showcased the immense depth of talent that exists.”

He concluded the message by stating that, despite the results, every athlete is a champion. Bindra wrote, “To each one of you, remember you are champions. Your time will come.”
