'It was an amazing experience:' Crowds cheer as Zara Philips rides in Cheltenham racecourse clutching Olympic flame
Quote:
The cheers could hardly have been louder if she’d won a gold medal. A crowd of more than 30,000 turned out yesterday to watch Zara Phillips bearing the Olympic torch at Cheltenham racecourse. The Queen’s 31-year-old granddaughter was taking part in the fifth day of the torch relay, on her beloved horse Toytown.

Thanks for posting the video, MagMil!
DM got one thing right; the crowds couldn't have cheered more loudly even if she had just won a gold medal.

What an experience for Zara! I really hope she gets picked for team. Unless she already has been selected and I have been living under a rock over the past few weeks...

It would be great to see her be picked and then to see her mother and grandmother (and probably other relations) come to support her.

The team hasn't been selected yet.

London 2012 Olympics: Zara Phillips desperate to show her worth to selectors after wet start to eventing season - Telegraph

From last Tuesday:

As she prepared to take part in the Olympic torch relay, Zara Phillips insisted on Tuesday that she — and her horse High Kingdom — still had a chance of being selected for the British equestrian team for the Olympics.

Further down the article is says that the team was supposed to be announced on Thursday but due to the cancellation of some events earlier this year the team selection won't be made until mid-June so a few weeks to go for the possibles, including Zara, to prove they are worth their place.

Further down again

Received wisdom has it that four of the five places in the British eventing team have already been secured by the form riders William Fox Pitt, Mary King, Piggy French and Nicola Wilson. Which leaves Phillips fighting for the final spot with experienced campaigners such as Pippa Funnell, Tina Cooke and Oliver Townend.

I find it interesting that Pippa Funnell is listed there as the reports over the previous months had been that she was out of the running as all her horses were injured.

Thats because a couple of major events, which would have been used by the selectors, had been rained out.

The team was going to be announced last Thursday but following the wash-outs of Badminton, Cheltenham etc they have delayed the selection of the team until mid-June.

Had Pippa Funnell's horses not been injured they may still have announced the team last week but those injuries have opened up a place and Zara is competing for that fifth spot (of course one of the other four that are seen as virtual certainties may also have a couple of bad events or injured horses - hopefully not for the sake of the horses - that could open up another spot).

I hope she'll make it to the Olympics after she had bad luck for the last two games (her horse got injured both times)!

I'm so glad she did so well- a finish like that ought to make the selectors sit up and take notice.

We should find out this week if she made the team. It would be fantastic to see her do it!

I believe the team will be announced on Monday London time so within the next 24 hours or so.

I do hope she makes it and emulates her father's achievements of winning a medal for Britain (just not the gold as that I want to go to Australia) but she can emulate his 1988 achievement not his 1972 one. 1972 Mark was in the gold medal winning team while he won bronze in 1988. Anne was on the team in 1976 but that team didn't win a medal.
