Team GB’s equestrians have won a silver medal in the Olympic eventing competition. Tina Cook, William Fox-Pitt, Mary King, Zara Phillips and Nicola Wilson came only behind Germany on the fourth day of London 2012.
Meanwhile, comments by a US coach that Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen’ world record-breaking swim in the women’s 400 metres individual medley on Saturday was “unbelievable” and “disturbing” have been dismissed by the British Olympic Association (BOA). BOA chairman Lord Moynihan said Ye had passed drugs tests and deserved “recognition for her talent“.
