Team Germany repeated their 2008 Olympic medal-winning performance when claiming Eventing team and individual gold at the London 2012 Olympic equestrian venue in Greenwich Park today. Such was their supremacy that they clinched the team title even before their last rider went into the ring, and Michael Jung set a new record in equestrian sport when becoming the first-ever event rider to hold Olympic, European and World titles at the same time. What a way to celebrate his 30th birthday!

The U.S. team rallied to qualify two riders for the individual final today in Greenwich Park but would have been less than satisfied with the team seventh place finish at these Olympic Games. It was Germany all the way for gold medals and a gallant Great Britain holding onto the silver medal as New Zealand ousted Sweden to take the bronze, which was some consolation for Double Olympic Champion Mark Todd who dropped out of individual medal contention when Campino lowered the first part of the double in the team event.

The U.S. riders had mixed fortunes on the cross country at the Olympic Games with anchorman Phillip Dutton and Jim and Arden Wildasin's Mystery Whisper returning the best result of the team adding just 2.8 time penalties to his overnight score to finish the day on 47.1 in 12th place. The team is currently in 5th place on 155.2 which will mean a long uphill climb to get back in medal contention tomorrow since the Germans held onto the lead and go into the show jumping on 124.70 followed by Great Britain on 130.2 and Sweden with 131.4.

Olympic Eventing cross-country produced spectacular sport in Greenwich Park today where at the end of an afternoon filled with thrills, spills, dramas and excitement, team Germany maintained the advantage. But it’s only a slight one, as the host British side lies just over five penalty points behind in silver medal position going into tomorrow’s final jumping phase, while Sweden is just over a single point further in arrears.

The U.S. finished the dressage phase outside the medal positions today in Greenwich Park despite two solid rides by Phillip Dutton and Will Coleman to put the team in seventh place on a score of 138.80 going into the cross country phase.  Will Coleman produced a credible performance in his Olympic debut to finish on 46.3 but was clearly somewhat disappointed with Twizzel.

The U.S. team established its intentions today in Greenwich Park by finishing in bronze medal position after the first day’s dressage of the London Olympic Games. Boyd Martin and Otis Barbotiere put the first marks on the score board in front of a large crowd when they got things underway in ideal weather conditions for the horses. Boyd, who was asked to be pathfinder by Team Leader Mark Phillips, is currently tied for 13th place on 50.7 at the halfway stage and is clearly enjoying his Olympic experience, “I’m thrilled to be here.

It’s been a long four-year wait, and the tension has been building steadily all week, but Greenwich Park will burst into action at 10.00 tomorrow morning when Eventing gets the London 2012 Olympic equestrian events underway with America’s Boyd Martin first into the dressage arena.

The U.S. were the first team to present at the jog in Greenwich Park this morning and passed with flying colors in front of a small gathering in the arena. Will Coleman led off with Twizzel followed by Tiana Coudray with Ringwood Magister, Phillip Dutton and Mystery Whisper, Boyd Martin and Otis Barbotiere, and finally Karen O’Connor with Mr. Medicott.
