240 Forever. Andrey Mitin after his tough XC trip at the Olympics. 240 Forever. Andrey Mitin after his tough XC trip at the Olympics.

Yes, the eventing portion of the Olympics is over and we know how it shook out in the end. There is still plenty of dressage and show jumping to watch in the coming days, but I don’t think I will see anything that makes me smirk as much as Russian rider Andrey Mitin did. There’s some small comfort in knowing that we have to deal with many of the same #eventerproblems, like left over number-residue in our pinneys, around the world and at every level.
