Team GB Secure Dramatic Showjumping Gold!

7 Aug

Team GB have secured a dramatic showjumping gold after a Jump-Off with the Netherlands at GreenwichPark yesterday.

 

Locked at the top after two days of exceptional riding, the team showjumping was decided in the sport’s penalty shoot-out equivalent between Holland and GB.

 

Nick Skelton led the team in fine style, producing an absolutely faultless round in good pace when it mattered the most. The rest of the team followed, with Ben Maher and Scott Brash knocking down just one fence between them.

 

Meanwhile, Dutch errors left the door open for GB to go one better than the silver medal won by their eventing counterparts earlier in the competition. It came down to Peter Charles at the end of the event, who secured another faultless run for Great Britain to take a memorable Showjumping gold.

 

There are more medal hopes this afternoon for Team GB in the equestrian, as Carl Hester, Charlotte Dujardin and Laura Bechtolsheimer go for gold in the dressage.

 

MacWet wish all of the Team GB riders the very best for continued success!
