The school that breeds Indian medal winners


India's athletes are enjoying their best ever medal haul at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. One of the superstars of Indian sport is Abhinav Bindra - he carried the flag for the home nation in the opening ceremony and won gold in the 10m air rifle pairs.

Tom Burridge travelled to the Bindra's old school - Doon School in India for BBC World Class to find out how the school breeds success.

Abhinav Bindra is one of the athletes being tracked by World Olympic Dreams as London 2012 approaches. BBC World Class and the British Council have teamed up to give schools in the UK a chance to twin with the athletes schools.
