RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — William Fox-Pitt leads after the dressage phase of the eventing competition, just 10 months after being put into an induced coma following a fall.
Fox-Pitt, who only returned to competitive action in early April, rode Chilli Morning to a score of 37 on Saturday and no-one could top that when the second group of riders competed Sunday.
Christopher Burton of Australia and Santano II remain second, 0.6 penalties behind the Briton.
Mathieu Lemoine rode Bart L into third place with 39.2 penalties, replacing Olympic individual champion Michael Jung who slipped to fifth on 40.9 after German teammate Ingrid Klimke scored 39.5.
Germany, which is bidding for a third straight Olympic title, still leads the team competition, with France moving from fourth to second and Australia falling to third.
