Cook prepared for Olympic feast
Tina Cook launches the Sussex challenge at the London Olympics tomorrow when the eventing gets under way with the dressage in Greenwich Park.
The Findon-based rider is partnering Miners Frolic again after they won bronze in both the team and individual event in Beijing four years ago.
Miners Frolic almost died last year from colitis. Cook said: "It is fantastic to be here. It feels a little surreal, to be honest.
"We were not expecting the horse to be here, so it's so exciting for all involved. He is very well and he feels amazing."
The dressage is over two days, followed by Monday's cross-country section and the show jumping on Tuesday when the medals are decided.
Gemma Spofforth could already be on the podium by then.
The Shoreham-born swimmer, fourth in the 100 metres backstroke in Beijing, has the heats on Sunday morning, semi-finals on Sunday evening and, if all goes according to plan, the final on Monday night.
