Decorated Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra  created a flutter by saying that tomorrow ( Tuesday) would be his last day in professional shooting.

Olympic champion Bindra, who would be competing at the 10m air-rifle event in the ongoing Incheon Asian Games on Tuesday, said that even though his resume is “complete”, he would still give his best to be to in 2016 Rio Games for one last time.

“Tomorrow will mark the end of my professional shooting life ! I will however still shoot, compete as a hobby shooter training twice a week,” the 2008 Beijing Olympics gold medallist wrote on his twitter page.

“And yes I will still try to be at Rio and my bio is now most appropriate ! Great times and am sure there will be a few more!” added Bindra.

Come tomorrow, Bindra would be eyeing to better his silver medal in the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games when he turns up at the Gyeonggido Shooting Range for one last time in the continental event.
