Charlotte Dujardin’s bronze in individual dressage was her sixth Olympic medal, making her Team GB the most highly decorated female Olympic champion

Charlotte Dujardin became Britain’s best-decorated female Olympian when she took bronze in individual dressage aboard Gio at the Tokyo Games.

Dujardin had won five medals along with rower Dame Katherine Grainger and tennis player Kathleen McKane Godfree when Team GB took bronze in team dressage on Tuesday, and she added her sixth Olympic medal at the end of a dramatic day at Equestrian Park.

Dujardin and her horse Gio were in third place after the penultimate ride of the day, and it was eagerly awaited for the German Dorothy Schneider and Showtime FRH in the arena. However, they couldn’t do enough to overtake the British pairing and the bronze medal was secured.

Dujardin has won three gold, one silver and two bronze medals in her Olympic career, which began in London in 2012
