At the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday, Charlotte Dujardin made history after winning bronze in the individual dressage saw her become the most decorated British female Olympian – as she won a sixth medal, according to the Daily Mail UK.
Dujardin already came into the event with a record-equaling fifth medal with another bronze in the team dressage final, she has made history following that win in the Tokyo Olympics.
She finished with a total score of 88.543 per cent finishing behind Isabel Werth on 89.657 per cent, who claimed silver and Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl on 91.732 per cent- capping of a performance worthy of a gold medal.
This was an impressive win by the 36-year-old Dujardin, taking in to consideration that her new horse, Gio was competing in its first major championship.
Dujardin commented after her win ‘I knew I wasn’t going to go down without a fight. I wanted to go out and enjoy it, and he gave me absolutely everything.
‘To win medals individually and in the team in the last three Games, I couldn’t be prouder. And to do it with a new dance partner, I couldn’t be prouder.
