Olympics boost for Skelton

British Olympic team member Nick Skelton leaves for Atlanta on a high note after winning his third King George V Gold Cup at the Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead yesterday, writes Mary Gordon Watson. In 1993 he had the only clear round on Limited Edition but he had to work much harder on Cathleen to win back this prestigious trophy. Earlier Ireland's Mary Hughes on Flo-Jo won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup in a competition which saw no clear rounds recorded.
