Team GB win eventing gold at Tokyo Olympics – and two more silver medals

UK

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.

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.
