Legendary shooter Abhinav Bindra believes it is only a matter of time before India gets another individual gold medallist at the Games.

Bindra, who won the coveted gold in 2008 Beijing Olympics, thus far remains the only Indian to have won an individual gold at the Olympics and he said that he was hoping to see more at the Tokyo Olympics which have been postponed to next year due to coronavirus pandemic.

“I was certainly hoping that come July-August this year I would not remain the only one. I think it is a matter of time before we win more golds. A lot of young athletes are doing really well in different sports. I do hope that the athletes remain motivated, continue to train and remain focussed for the Games which will now be held in July 2021,” Bindra said on Sony Ten’s ‘The Medal of Glory’ that was aired on the network’s Facebook page.
