Big Star grabs the Olympic Gold

Four years after team gold in London and the lost individual final, Nick Skelton and Big Star take revanche during the 2016 Rio Olympics! They won the gold medal by topping the order list and the result list at the medal jump-off. Skelton immediately put in a nice fast and clear round. Only Peder Fredricson held the zero, but his time was a fraction slower, good for silver. Eric Lamaze, the last and fastest in the jump-off, he had the second-to-last vertical down and grabbed the bronze, eight years after the gold of Beijing. 2012 Champion Steve Guerdat just fell aside the podium on fourth place.
