German Werth becomes most successful Olympian rider with sixth gold

Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Isabell Werth became the most successful rider in Olympic history when she won her sixth gold medal as part of the German dressage team Friday at the Rio Olympics.

The 47-year-old equestrian downplayed the record though as "not that important" to her.

"I‘d rather have one gold medal less and strive after my grandmother, who has reached the age of 102," she said.

Werth and her horse Weihegold rode a superior round that secured them victory even before the tournament‘s last rider, Britain‘s Charlotte Dujardin, started on Valegro.

Dujardin and her team made silver, while bronze went to the US riders.

The German team also included Kristina Broering-Sprehe on Desperados, Dorothee Schneider on Showtime and Soenke Rothenberger on Cosmo.

The previous all-time Olympic equestrian leader was the late German Reiner Klimke, who had six gold and three bronze medals.

Werth now has six gold and three silver medals.

"It may sound stupid, but I‘m not really into statistics," she said.

Werth started her medal collection 24 years ago in Barcelona with a team win at the age of 23. Four years later, she brought home double gold from Atlanta. Her last win before Rio was a team victory in Hong Kong in 2008.

The athlete has a chance of collecting another medal Monday in the individual dressage competition, although Dujardin is seen as the favourite.
