London Olympics
Eventing : Gold for Germany

Two Gold medals for Michael Jung in eventing : both the individual and team medals, which confirms once again the supremacy of the German riders, as they climb onto the highest step of the podium, followed by United Kingdom and New Zealand.

After the excitement of the cross country course, on a slippery terrain with quite a few falls, everybody was eager to find out the results of the jumping in order to celebrate the new champions.
