At the Athens Olympics in 2004, Leslie Law was not one of the favourites for the gold medal in the three day event but his own excellent performance and the subsequent disqualification of the German competitor brought him the ultimate prize. Law has served a long apprenticeship in his sport and his path to the top has been marred by misfortune and sadness. This book begins with Law as a schoolboy with a passion for horses and ends with his Olympic triumph. Written with Gillian Newsum the Equestrian writer for Country Life, Leslie Law's story will be a must-have for all lovers of his sport.

"'It was Yogi Breisner who broke the news to me. He had been British team manager since the Sydney Olympics, when I first rode for the team, and had become a good friend and huge support to me. 'You're not going to believe this,' he said, 'you've got the gold!' I was speechless. It was the first time a British rider had won an Olympic gold medal in eventing since Richard Meade in 1972.' Leslie Law."
