Nick Skelton wins European bronze medal in Madrid

Nick Skelton wins European bronze medal in Madrid

Well done to Nick Skelton who took the bronze european medal at the show jumping event in Mardrid.

In an astounding and dramatic finale to the European Showjumping Championships in Madrid, Great Britain's Nick Skelton won bronze with the mighty Carlo — adding to his team medal of the same colour won two days earlier.

But in a dramatic change around at the top of the leader board in the final stages of the competition, Sweden's Rolf-Goran Bengtsson rose from fifth to snatch gold with his long-time partner Ninja La Silla while overnight leader, Germany's Carsten-Otto Nagel, had to settle for silver on the wonderful grey mare Corradina.
