And they did it with only three riders, since Mac Cone had to drop out due to his horse's injury (normally, there are four members of each team in team show jumping, and the best three scores in each round are counted -- so only having three riders meant they couldn't drop the lowest score).

I'm only disappointed that I couldn't watch, due to time zone differences. Here's hoping I can find a highlights reel on the Internet or something.
