Shooting is 99 per cent luck, one per cent training: Abhinav

india Updated: Aug 11, 2008 19:54 IST

"Shooting is 99 per cent luck and one per cent training", opines India's first individual Olympic gold medal winning marksman Abhinav Bindra.

And yet the shooter came to the final of the ten metre air rifle event here after a hard training session--seven hours of shooting and two hours of stretching and jogging.

Clearly, by his own words, lady luck smiled on Abhinav and his efforts were handsomely rewarded.
