Gold rush for Team GB’s Olympic dressage team
Congratulations to Team GB as Laura Bechtolsheimer, Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin have claimed a team gold ahead of Germany inside Greenwich Park today in the dressage. Britain's stunning team average of 79.979 beat Germany's 78.216 and proved they are a force to be reckoned with.
Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro have emerged stars from these Games, setting an Olympic record last week before their second ride confirmed a first-ever team dressage title today.
This was Team GB's 20th gold medal at London 2012, meaning we have now surpassed our tally at Beijing 2008. This now means that London 2012 has been Team GB’s most successful Olympics in over a century.
