India's Bindra wins gold in 10-meter air rifle



BEIJING (AP) - Abhinav Bindra won the gold medal in the 10-meter air rifle Monday, giving India its first medal of the Olympics.

The 2006 world champion entered the final in third place but overtook China's Zhu Qinan and Finland's Henri Hakkinen by scoring 104.5 points for the title.

Bindra finished with 700.5 points, edging out Zhu who had 699.7 points for the silver. Zhu won the gold medal in 2004. Hakkinen got the bronze with 699.4.

Zhu's second place finish gives the Chinese three medals in the shooting competition after Guo Wenjun won the women's 10-meter air pistol and Pang Wei took the men's.
