London: Britain has beaten the Netherlands in a jumpoff for the gold medal in team show jumping at the London Games, its first gold in that equestrian discipline in 60 years.
Three members of Britain's four-man team — Nick Skelton, Ben Maher and Peter Charles — rode clear rounds in the jumpoff to give the host team the victory. The fourth member was Scott Brash.
Skelton, 54, broke his neck in 2000 but returned to the sport two years later. Charles previously competed in two Olympics for Ireland but changed his citizenship to British in 2007.
