Tokyo Olympics: Team GB win gold in team eventing competition

·1-min read

Team GB have won gold in team eventing at the Tokyo Olympics.

Laura Collett, Tom McEwen and Oliver Townend secured what is Team GB's 11th gold at this year's Games - the team's 33rd medal in total.

All three riders were making Games debuts, but delivered high-class displays to end a 49-year wait for team gold.

Oliver Townend was the final British rider to go, but thanks to an impressive lead, he had the luxury of knowing he could knock four fences down and still the Olympic title.

Britain finished on a score of 86.30, and it is a third equestrian medal in Tokyo for Team GB following Charlotte Dujardin, Carl Hester and Charlotte Fry winning dressage team bronze, and Dujardin also collecting an individual bronze.
