Yet you would gladly accept the medals your country won in this "sport". Get a grip. 

What? Please READ my comment before answering. It makes me really angry, you are wasting my time with your nonsense comments. I said that none equestrian event can be considered a sport and earlier i said that eventing shouldnt be an olympic discipline. Equestrian in general cant be considered a sport and therefore shouldnt be olympic, even formula 1 is more of a sport than equestrian.

Its really a shame that there is no way to downvote comment. You are deliberately wasting my time by writing complete nonsense, next time i will report your comment.

Britain sinking it's teeth into that second place and not letting go. Hard to imagine that 20 years ago in Atlanta they had 1 gold. :lol:

That's how to respond to a disaster.... if only our NOC would respond to a disaster in the same way :d

Hopefully we will see 4 rounds at the next olympic games, like at the world championships. Then we wont get such random results, with complete underdogs winning gold and silver. The individual qualification obviously is a complete joke, its almost impossible to not qualify for the final if you dont have to retire and then everyone starts with 0 points again. In the team event there was at least a real qualification, with teams like GB being eliminated. There shouldnt be multiple rounds of qualification, just to get down to 35 riders, it makes all the qualification rounds pretty senseless, instead qualification rounds should count for the final result, like at the world championships.

 

Its sad that some people are too childish to quote someone and instead need to talk over their head. If you want to discuss then quote, otherwise stay quiet, its really that simple, every grown-up should know that, its sad that i even need to mention it.

Now all you need is Copenhagen 2028 and £350 million of national funding into elite sports every 4 years!!

No problem! :p

On a more serious note. Hopes are that this succes will get our athletes 50-100 million dkr. more than for this olympic period (In which we already had much more than we're used to), as it could seem more attractive to give money.
