The first Olympic day in pictures

Saturday, 04 August 2012

Ian Millar just seconds before he does his first start in his 10th Olympic Games. For sure an impressive record! 

One of the beautiful fences on the course in Greenwich Park.This was the last combination at 12a and b that made some horses spook a bit. And this lion for sure scared some horses. Ahmad Saber Hamcho with Wonderboy on his way in to the arena. Both Alberto Michan and Rosalia were pleased after their clear round.Beezie Madden didn't have the best day at work with her Via Volo, and got eliminated. Björn Nagel with Niack de L'Abbaye looked like he couldn't wait to go into the arena.Cian O'Connor did a clear round for Ireland with Blue Loyd. He got the space that Denis Lynch originally was nominated for. And it was really strange to see Denis Lynch (in the middle) in the Australian colours instead. He is here as a trainer for Julia Hargreaves.Julia Hargreaves giving her Vedor a hug after a clear round.Summer or winter? Looks like Werner Muff and Steve Guerdat had some different oppinions about the weather.Reigning Olympic champion Eric Lamaze talking to the press after his ride which resulted in a clear round. A big smile on Rich Fellers' face after a great round with the 16 year old Flexible.Another rider with a big smile after his ride - Henrik von Eckermann with Allerdings. Every horse gets checked by the vets after their round, the boots are taken off and the legs are checked.Kevin Staut and Silvana on their way to the arena. Rodrigo Pessoa had only one time fault in the class. Interviews going on everywhere - here Simon Delestre. And here Steve Guerdat.Edwina Tops-Alexander took a water break while the vets checked Itot du Chateau. Jos Lansink and Valentina van't Heike was the last couple to go and they finished the class on a zero score.
