Usha to call Bindra to congratulate personally

Kozhikode, Aug 11 (UNI) Former Sprint Queen P T Usha today said she would call up ace shooter Abhinav Bindra to congratulate him personally for bringing laurels to the country by winning an individual Olympic gold medal at Beijing.

''It's really an inspiration for every Indian and I will call him up to convey my feelings personally,'' Usha told UNI, while reacting to his victory.

Regretting that she was unable to go to Bejing due to certain problems, Usha, who missed a bronze at Los Angeles Olympics by a whisker, said, ''otherwise I could have witnessed the gold medal winning performance.'' Terming Abhinav as highly motivated, Usha said he worked hard for many years to make the country proud.

Usha said she had already congratulated his father, A S Bindra, over phone on the achievement.
