Eventing team may reunite in Rio
Great Britain's Olympic silver medal-winning eventing team could all conceivably be in contention to go for gold in 2016.
Mary King, at 51 the oldest team member, has already stated her intention to aim for a remarkable seventh successive Olympics appearance in Rio de Janeiro.
And given the consistent national and international form of her four team-mates at Greenwich Park - William Fox-Pitt, Tina Cook, Zara Phillips and Nicola Wilson - an Olympic reunion cannot be ruled out.
"I hope to be in Rio. I have no visions of stopping yet," King said.
"I love the sport. I am fit and healthy, though getting old, and I love it. You've got (New Zealander) Mark Todd even older than me and still loving the sport.
"My daughter Emily is keen to ride in my footsteps, and her dream is for us to ride in the team together. She may be a bit young for Rio."
Britain had to settle for silver behind London 2012 favourites Germany, whose star rider Michael Jung also won individual gold.
It might have been even better for Britain had the Queen's granddaughter Phillips, in her own words, not "messed up" and had seven showjumping penalties aboard High Kingdom. Britain finished 4.5 behind winners Germany.
But it would be extremely harsh to point fingers at the 31-year-old, who received a first Olympic medal from her mother the Princess Royal and was also watched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cornwall.
World number one Fox-Pitt had problems during yesterday's cross-country round, collecting uncharacteristic time faults, in a sport that lasts for four days over three different equestrian disciplines - dressage, cross-country and showjumping.
Cook, whose horse Miners Frolic almost died from colitis a year ago, said: "When he came out of hospital last year he was very thin and very weak.
"He wasn't rideable, but he went back to his owner and fattened up on the grass there with some tender loving care.
"A lot of people have done an amazing job. He has been so brave fighting back from illness like he has done.
"To get a medal in London is amazing - we weren't expecting to be here this time last year.
"You come here wishing for gold, and you dream of that, but this means a huge amount."
Phillips recovered from her morning showjumping mishap to jump clear and claim eighth spot individually, and she was in philosophical mood afterwards.
"You cannot think what could have been, it is too late for that," she said.
"I messed up and had to get on with it. He is a good jumper, but he couldn't get out of where I put him. Even the best jumpers can't do that.
"It was my fault, not his. I didn't knock any others down and then I was a bit slow, but after that he jumped fantastic."
After a rest day in the equestrian schedule, Britain's dressage team will begin their gold medal quest on Thursday.
The team of Carl Hester, Charlotte Dujardin and Laura Bechtolsheimer are favourites for gold, and arrive in London as reigning European champions.
