Australian jumping legend and three-time Olympian Edwina Tops-Alexander has been off the competition scene for a while and for very good reason. On July 30 she became a mother for the first time.
Australia’s Young Rider team cruised to a comfortable victory in the CCI2* Young Rider leg of the 2017 Oceania Championships yesterday at the Melbourne International 3 Day Event.
In breach of the Olympic Charter and for the first and only time in history, except for a slight exception in 1920, the 1956 Olympics Games were held in two countries.
Edwina Tops-Alexander has finished equal ninth at the individual show jumping after knocking one rail in the final round of competition at the Olympic Equestrian Centre.
As we near the end of the Games Australia is looking strong for a couple of medals on Day 14 with prospects in athletics, BMX at least. We also have a thrilling men’s basketball game to thrill us.
