Cook gets Olympic place
12:08am Tuesday 12th June 2012 in Sport
Sussex's Tina Cook has described her selection in Great Britain’s eventing team for the London Olympics as a dream come true.
Cook, from Findon, has been chosen alongside the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips, William Fox-Pitt, Mary King and Piggy French.
World number one Fox-Pitt will ride Lionheart, King will be aboard Imperial Cavalier and Cook with her 2008 double bronze-medal winning horse Miners Frolic, which almost died last year.
Cook, 41, said: “After the horse’s illness last year this is a dream come true."
A three-strong selection panel of Ian Stark, Mandy Stibbe and Angela Tucker made their final deliberations following Sunday’s Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials in Yorkshire.
Phillips, the 2006 world champion will emulate her mother, the Princess Royal, who competed at the 1976 Montreal Games, while her father Captain Mark Phillips was a team gold medallist at Munich in 1972 and then won silver in Seoul 16 years later.
Phillips will ride High Kingdom at Greenwich Park next month.
