Several of the world's best jumping horses took off from Liege airport yesterday, and flew out to Rio. Azur and Cortes 'C' (pictured above) were just two of many famous names on the flight that carried precious cargo for the Olympic Games. 

The showjumping in Rio starts on Sunday 14th. The horse inspection takes place on Friday 12th, and the training session on Saturday 13th. The full time table can be found here.
