Since it’s Throwback Thursday, here’s a #tbt video of Mark Todd and Charisma’s performance at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.
Mark and Charisma won their gold medal 31 years ago this week, and the New Zealand Olympic Team posted the video this past Tuesday — Sept. 22, the day Toddy stood atop the podium — in celebration of the win.
Only 316 days to go until the next Olympics in Rio!
