Ace Indian marksman Abhinav Bindra has equalled his Beijing Olympics qualification score for the third time after the 2008 mega-event, the latest at a International Shooting Competition in Netherlands.

He shot identical 596 out of 600 - his Beijing Games qualification score - in the 10m air rifle event.

Bindra had shot 596 at another International Shooting event in Munich on December 31 last year.
