Zara Phillips MBE is a successful equestrienne, having won the World Eventing Championship in 2006, which adds to her team and individual gold medals at the 2005 European Eventing Championship. In 2011, she finished first at the Ballindenisk International Trials and tenth at the Burghley Horse Trials, putting her in contention for a place in Britain's equestrian team in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Zara is keen to promote the London 2012 Olympic Games: "To have the Olympic Games in our country is fantastic for British sport. Hopefully it will encourage more people to take part in sport as well as improve facilities. I'm really excited. There are lots of ways for people to get involved as well, which is really important, as it will feel like it's everyone's Olympic Games, and will be great for the country as a whole," she said.
