Background: Show-jumping, and on Monday (18 December) in London, British rider, David Broome won the last major event at the Olympia International-Grand Prix.
SYNOPSIS: Eddie Macken on Carrolls Dundalk, riding for Ireland. He was runner-up at last year's European Championships.
A refusal at the treble and he's out of the running. With the penalty his time was 37 point seven seconds. Caroline Bradley on Tigre riding for Britain. Caroline won a gold medal at the World Championships but this time she was out of luck.
From Germany -- current World Champion Gerd Wiltfang on Domitz.
Wiltfang had a clear round in the fine time of 28 points eight seconds to be at that stage equal leader with John Whitaker of Britain.
But it was David Broome who showed the way it should be done. He was riding Sportsman.
A clear round. Competition was tight with only fractions of a second separating the contestants. Broome's time of 28 points five seconds was only point three ahead of the equal second place-getters.
First prize was seventeen hundred pounds (U.K.) and David Broome added yet another trophy to his collection.
