Zara and her father, Mark Phillips (trainer of the US eventing team), met in the Equestrian arena in Greenwich, London on July 25, 2012.

Zara looks nervous, which is quite understandable.
Although Mark is US eventing team trainer, I don't think there is a doubt who he'll be supporting during the Olympics.

It's nice seeing him with his daughter, for no doubt he will be giving her advise and will be supporting her all the way.

Given the fact that he is the Head Coach for the USA team I would say that professionally his daughter is giving him a wide berth. Personally I doubt she is very fond of dear old dad at the moment. :ohmy::ohmy:

I just got the starting order and Zara will be competing on Day 2. Sorry didn't know where to put this

Has Zara competed yet? I've been so busy I haven't caught alot of the olympics, and I don't want to miss her. I'm really pulling for her. I remember she said or somebody said she wouldn't be at the opening ceromonies because she was competing the next day, but I haven't heard anything.

No tomorrow she will be at 10:18am UK time. I cannot find any stations airing it live except NBC Extra and BBC Olympics but I can't access it so I'm stuck with the tape delayed version on OLN at 7am PST

Watching Zara right now haven't seen the Duke yet

I missed Zara's ride because a friend rang and my TV is in a different room but her result is quite good - at this stage she is the second best of the British riders and is about 9th overall - of course they are only about half way through the dressage so that could change a bit over the course of the day.

dazzling 07-29-2012 05:42 AM

Zara completed the dressage test for the eventing with a total of 46.10 points.

Yes. Charlotte rides at the 1* level and it's unlikely that she'll ever compete in the Olympics.

Good for her! Dressage is typically her weakest area and cross country's her strongest, so she's off to a good start.

I'm not that familiar with the equestrian events. Can someone provide some info. I understand this is a 3 part competition ... And I believe this is individual .. Is there a team competition as well? And specifically the events. Any info appreciated. Just trying to get an understanding on how many opportunities Zara has.... Or all eggs in this one basket?

EIIR 07-29-2012 01:21 PM

Michelle, I think Zara's in the team event as well as the individual. The BBC commentary mentioned that her dressage was exactly what the team needed as it kept them in 3rd place overall, and they want to be at least 3rd heading into the cross-country. I think the individual competition runs alongside the team competition, but I'm not sure.

FasterB 07-29-2012 02:05 PM

Princess Nathalie (and the danish team) will be competing on the 2nd and 3rd of August :)

ElisaR 07-29-2012 02:31 PM

Nice pictures. And the Duke seems to enjoy the event.

I couldn't watch Zara because the Italian TV was focusing on other sports where Italians where competing. They usually show very small bits of equestrian events, and I won't get a chance to watch Zara live in the next days, unless there is an Italian athlete just after her...

ghost_night554 07-29-2012 05:01 PM

So for those wondering Zara competes again tomorrow starting at 4:30am PST. For Canadians OLN will be airing this live(unless schedule changes once again) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with Prince Harry are scheduled to attend.

Thena 07-29-2012 07:20 PM

Here's a weird quirk: the cross country starts at 7:30 EDT (4:30 PDT). However, NBC Sports Network has the cross country on their schedule from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM EDT. I don't know where Zara Phillips will fall in their line-up, but they will definitely include her somewhere in their coverage.

Oddly enough, NBC Sports Network only showed 5 riders from today's eventing and one of them was an Italian who scored in the top 3. But he wasn't competing directly after her and we were getting a taped recap.
