Every Olympian has a story – but some have a few more unexpected twists and turns than others. For Great Britain’s Laura Collett, her Olympic debut in Tokyo comes after some extraordinary highs: she won the CCI5* at France’s Les Etoiles de Pau last year, has represented her country since her childhood, and has featured near – or at – the top of the leaderboard in countless illustrious internationals. It also comes after some catastrophic lows: a fall that nearly ended her career, for example, and grappling with online abuse from strangers.
But now, all of the threads of her life and career are being woven into a colourful tapestry as she heads to the biggest competition of her life as one of the hot favourites for an individual medal. Can she become the first woman ever to win Olympic eventing individual gold? Before she starts her fight for the top spot, though, there’s plenty of logistics to organise. In this interview, you’ll learn more about the quarantine process, how the trip to Tokyo will work – and what it’s actually like to get the phone call confirming that you’ve been selected.
(And no, it’s not too early to cry about the Olympics. This is a safe space.)
Exercise-induced muscle damage that results in sore, stiff muscles and poor performance is a common problem in athletic horses. Vitamin E plays an important role in preserving optimal muscle function by interrupting the production of harmful free radicals that can damage critical tissues. When vitamin E levels in muscle tissue are inadequate, the risk of exercise-induced muscle damage is increased.
Elevate® Maintenance Powder supplies the natural vitamin E your horse needs to neutralize damaging free radicals and support peak performance. Keep your horse at the top of his game with Elevate natural vitamin E.
The horse that matters to you matters to us®.
