Congratulations to our Olympic Gold Medallist Nick Skelton. We are very proud of having as ambassador a man who never give up, an example for all those who love ride and the living proof that hard work always leads to amazing results.
GB's Nick Skelton takes gold in the individual show jumping, winning a six-way jump-off to claim the Olympic title. Skelton, riding Big Star, went clear in both opening rounds and did so again as the first to go in the jump-off.
Show jumper Nick Skelton became Britain's second-oldest Olympic gold medallist in his seventh Games. The 58-year-old, who initially retired 16 years ago after breaking his neck in two places, claimed individual gold after a six-way jump-off.
Nick Skelton wins gold riding Big Star in individual show jumping
Nick Skelton won Great Britain's first individual showjumping gold medal in Olympic history following a stunning performance in Deodoro. The 58-year-old, from Alcester in Warwickshire, also became Britain's oldest Olympic gold medallist in any sport, eclipsing shooter Jerry Millner, who won gold in 1908. Skelton and Big Star - his London 2012 team gold medal-winning ride - were among six combinations that jumped off against the clock after posting double clear rounds earlier in the day.
