Rio Olympics 2016: GB's Nick Skelton wins show jumping gold

British show jumper Nick Skelton has become 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. It is Britain's first individual show jumping medal since Anne Moore's silver in 1972, and adds to Skelton's gold in the team event at London 2012.


Three of Rio's showjumping medallists ended up topping the podium at the Longines FEI World Cup leg in Toronto, including Great Britain's Olympic champion Nick Skelton.
