TODD Mark (1956) New Zealand / Equestrian
Todd, a sheep farmer, had to sell several of his flocks to pay for his training. The New Zealand horseman had no cause to regret the investment, as he proved to be the top in dressage, cross-county and show jumping, achieved a faultless round and won the three day event at the 1984 Los Angeles games with his horse Charisma.He was back in the fray in Seoul on the same horse, and did even better, at the same time keeping the Olympic title he had won four years earlier.Todd then sat down to write a biography of his old partner Charisma. By the time the Sydney games came around (not far from his homeland) Mark Todd had returned to competition, and once again climbed on to the podium to collect the bronze medal.
