Congratulate Anju GeorgeCongratulate Anju George

Anju Bobby George created history in Paris on Saturday when she became the first Indian athlete ever to win a medal in a major international competition.

A few others have come close in the past -- Milkha Singh and P T Usha spring to mind -- but never quite made it. George finally broke the barrier when she took the bronze in the women's long jump with a season's best effort of 6.70m.

Wish Anju George
