An Event to Remember: Wrapping Up the Olympic Eventing Competition

2012 Olympics Equestrian Eventing Medalists

Among the Olympic equestrian sports, eventing is undoubtedly the most grueling, putting horse and rider through four days of nerve-wracking competition. Eventing tests competitors in three disciplines — dressage, cross-country, and jumping — and awards medals at both the team and individual levels. These four days of equestrian drama wrapped up yesterday, dominated by the Germans, led by Michael Jung and his horse Sam, who jumped a clean round on Tuesday to win the individual gold and helped their team nab the team gold medal for the second straight Olympics. The home team, Great Britain, snatched the silver due to outstanding performances by Will and Harry's cousin Zara Phillips and Mary King, while New Zealand secured the bronze behind the legendary Mark Todd.
