Commonwealth Games 2010: Indian sport beyond cricket


As India celebrate their most successful Commonwealth Games ever, Tom Burridge assesses whether the perception of sport in India will now go beyond just cricket.

He asks India's first ever Olympic gold medallist Abhinav Bindra whether India now has what it takes to succeed in more sports.

He also hears from the head teacher at St. Stephen's - Abhinav's old school - who says being a top sportsperson in India is thankfully no longer about "who you know".

St Stephen's is being twinned as part of the Olympic Dream School Search, a competition that gives schools in the UK a chance to twin with schools attended by World Olympic Dreams athletes.
