Team GB claimed their first eventing team title in nearly half a century as Oliver Townend, Laura Collett and Tom McEwen struck equestrian gold in Tokyo.
British riders were perennial silver medallists in the competition, coming second in Los Angeles, Seoul, Sydney, Athens and London, plus claiming bronze in Beijing.
But after four days of competition, across dressage, cross country and jumping disciplines, they brilliantly held off the challenge of Australia and France in silver and bronze for their first title since 1972.
For Collett, riding London 52, just being in Tokyo was a staggering achievement in itself.
A heavy fall in 2013 left her with spine, shoulder and rib fractures, spending six days in a coma after her life was saved by the air jacket she was wearing.
Collett, 31, from Salperton, Gloucestershire, said:
And they may not be done yet. Heading into the individual competition later today, Townend – on Ballaghmor Class – is second overall with McEwen in third on Toledo De Kerser and Collett fifth.
Townend, 38, from Huddersfield, said:
