London Olympics 2012: Zara Phillips praises team for victory
London, Aug 01 (ANI): Some might say Queen Elizabeths granddaughter Zara Phillips was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Now she can also boast a silver medal. Phillips and the British equestrian team came second behind Germany in a close fought Olympic eventing contest in front of a roaring home crowd. Teammate William Fox Pitt said the presence of royalty in the team had not increased the pressure to perform. Phillips is a former World and European champion and only the third rider in the history of the sport to hold both titles at once. She and her old champion Toytown carried the Olympic flame down Cheltenham racecourse before the Games.
