King in third place after day one of Eventing dressage
After the first day of the dressage phase of Olympic Eventing in Greenwich Park, Mary King currently lies in third place; her team mate Nicola Wilson ends the day in equal sixteenth.
This is Mary’s sixth Olympic appearance for Britain; today she rode a super, bold test with the switched on Imperial Cavalier, scoring 9’s for the highlights to go into second place individually behind Germany’s Dirk Schrade on 40.9 pen, their best score at 4* level.
On entering the arena Mary held her fingers to her lips to signal quiet to the crowds who responded with uncharacteristic quiet; you could have heard a pin drop in the main arena. Afterwards the stadium erupted for both British riders and both were visibly touched by the experience. Read more on the British Eventing Championships website...
