In equestrian events at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, Germany has a slight lead over Great Britain in medals earned, 3-2 with the individual and team dressage events now complete. On Tuesday evening in Japan (Tuesday morning in the United States), the Jumping Individual Qualifying contests will move into the competition phase, with individual qualifiers and finals, as well as jumping qualifying and finals Live here.
Great Britain took the individual gold in 2016 and the team gold in 2012, but could they take them both to move ahead of Germany at the 2020 Games? Without defending champion Nick Skelton, it isn’t impossible, but it may be more difficult. Still, the United States with the only other equestrian medal so far could look to make a statement of its own in the jumping events, in which they took the team silver In Rio five years ago.

One horse is taking the Internet by storm following an equestrian dressage event, where he showed off his rhythm at the Tokyo Olympics.
Team USA’s four-time Olympian Steffen Peters and his horse Suppenkasper (or Mopsi) have gone viral following the dressage Grand Prix Freestyle individual final, which is basically the riders and horses dancing to music while incorporating some tricks into the mix.

Four hours later, another notable name will go for a medal, with Laurel Hubbard making history, albeit controversially, as the first transgender woman at the Games. She could also become New Zealand’s first weightlifting medallist, with the bookmakers listing her as a clear second-favourite behind China’s Li Wenwen.
New Zealand’s other medal chance comes in the equestrian, where the Kiwi team will look to move up from their fourth place to gain a team medal in the jumping event, before the top 25 riders qualify for the individual final held just before midnight. Tim Price sits in fourth, and can add another medal to New Zealand’s storied equestrian history with a strong display tonight.
Needing much more than a strong display will be the Black Sticks women, who will need to play the game of their lives to beat the dominant Dutch hockey team in their quarter-final. The Black Sticks have been installed at $17 outsiders to the Netherlands’ $1.05 for the clash, but as the Oly Whites showed against Japan, that doesn’t mean they can’t put up a fight.
