Gloucestershire dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin has won her first freestyle gold at the World Equestrian Games in France. It completes a remarkable clean sweep of Olympic, world and European individual dressage titles.
British star Dujardin, who also holds the sport's three individual world records with 12-year-old wonderhorse Valegro, lit up Caen's Stade D'Ornano with a brilliant freestyle to music performance.
A score of 92.161 per cent gave her gold by an emphatic margin from Germany's Helen Langehanenberg (Damon Hill NRW) on 88.286 per cent, while Holland's Adelinde Cornelissen (Jerich Parzival) took bronze.
It means that at the age of 29, Dujurdian is Olympic champion (freestyle), European champion (grand prix special and freestyle) and world champion (grand prix special and freestyle).
A crowd of around 20,000 gave Dujardin a rapturous reception, and she once again delivered under pressure with a performance that oozed star quality in glorious Normandy sunshine.
With Dujardin and the British team winning silver on Tuesday, her freestyle exhibition completed another memorable championship and augers well for next year's Europeans ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympics.
