Book Description

Abhinav Bindra's journey to become the first Indian to win an individual Olympic gold is an example of a single-minded quest for perfection. Shattered by his failure at the 2004 Athens Olympics he changed as a shooter: he became an athlete bent on redemption a scientist who would try anything to win at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

This revised edition brings the story up to date including what happened at the Rio Olympics in 2016. Closely involved in telling this remarkable story is sportswriter Rohit Brijnath who gets into Bindra's mind to help produce one of the finest autobiographies written yet of an Indian sportsman.
