"It’s a shame that a more talented athlete couldn’t be part of the eventing team in the London Olympics just so Zara Phillips could compete. #nepotism" - Submitted by Anonymous
Except that Zara had to qualify for the team, she wasn’t given the spot and she’s qualified to compete in 3 olympics and is an european and world champion
Like was so easy going to Olympic.
How could Zara’s presence on the team be even remotely construed as nepotism? Nepotism is when you show favor to members of your family. Neither Anne nor Mark Phillips nor anyone else in Zara’s family was involved in the decision making process to name the Olympic team. And even if they had been, Zara is an excellent rider who has done incredibly well in international competition, including winning three European titles and a World title. Probably the only reason she doesn’t already have a case full of Olympic medals is that her horse was injured in training before Beijing and Athens- she was named to both teams but was forced to defer to the alternate as it’s difficult to ride without a horse.
My friend keeps practising it. Fucking amazing. I’m fairly certain the music got written by someone doodling geometric figures on a sheet of music paper and then realizing they’d actually written the song of the gods.
So I just checked out the video…is it even possible to play with one set of hands? Jeez.
