I kid you not when I tell you that team EN begins Instagram-stalking Laura Collett every year around this time.

Of course, when you’ve won multiple 5* events and multiple medals, you earn the right to take your training sessions however you see fit. London 52 certainly had another standout year, taking the title at Luhmühlen (that’s three 5* wins in as many starts, beginning with Pau in 2020 and Badminton in 2022). Great Britain may have depth to spare ahead of the upcoming Olympics in Paris, but there’s only one London 52.

We’re here for it, Dan, as long as we’re not the ones who have to ride you. Never change.
