London 2012 Olympic Games

Eventing Team GB in the press today

Rather than partying hard to celebrate their success, the team have been making the most out of all the media opportunities presented to them after taking team silver on home turf.

By our calculations we have had over 750 cuttings from the press today alone; here are a few choice links & clips of the coverage so far:

TV & Radio

This morning the team have already appeared on the BBC & ITV breakfast shows having been interviewed in last nights BBC Olympic programmes by Gabby Logan and Matthew Pincent, following an earlier chat with Gary Lineker and an emotional Clare Balding.

Watch the interviews again:
