DailyBeast: Royal Olympians

Zara Phillips

In the year of her grandmother’s Diamond Jubilee, Zara Phillips will be competing in the London Olympics as part of the British equestrian team. She follows in the footsteps (and hoofprints) of her mother, Princess Anne, who rode at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, and her father, Captain Mark Phillips, who won a gold medal with the British team in 1972 and a silver at the 1988 Games in Seoul. “I'm very excited, honored, but also nervous,” 31-year-old Zara admitted recently. “A horse is a pretty unpredictable animal and it is difficult when you are trying to get it and yourself into prime fitness. You are going that extra mile; you do the extra training and, unfortunately, things can happen.”
