I did not know Mary played golf nor have I seen her playing it.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and his sons Sheikh Hamdan, Sheikh Rashid, Sheikh Mayed, Sheikh Mansour and Sheikh Ahmed are all horse endurance racers and some are champions.

Sure that CP Mary loves playing golf? I thougt that she loves riding and I have never seen pics of her playing golf or read anything about it.

I know that CP Victoria loves to play golf. She usually plays golf with Daniel, but in this summer Daniel is unable to play golf because of his kidney-transplantation. There was an article about this in the last time in on of the big swedish tabloids.
Princess Madeleine loves riding as CP does and her future husband loves to play football.
Queen Silvia loves skiing and she also loves to swim. I read in an article some years ago that they have build a swimmingpool in the castle of Drottningholm so that the royal family can do swimming whenever they want, but I do not know if this is right.

I've never seen photos, but I've read about in articles that came out during the engagement. She has memberships at a few golf clubs in Copenhagen. I don't know how often she plays anymore, but I have read that it is one of the sports that she enjoys.
Here's one of the articles (scroll down to "the Crown Princess' background"):

Didn't George VI excel at cricket and play doubles at Wimbledon one year?
I know his son-in-law HRH Duke of Edinburgh was President of MCC twice.

Since we are on the subject of royals and sports I was wondering if anyone knew which royal has won the most medals at the Olympics and which royal has won overall the most medals?

Frederik of Denmark's physical abilities are a way above any comparison to other royals due to his military career.

Mary is also an avid athlete.
She competed (at a local level) in horsejumping. She was captain to her highschool hockey and basketball teams, she was also a member of the swimming teams. Later she played basketball for her University.
I saw some vids and pictures of her running, her muscle structure is quite impressive and she is very fit.
