The Olympic individual gold medalist from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Big Star, has suffered a mild injury, according to a press release from the Geneva CHI.

COTH blogger and Olympic commentator Steven Wilde relays his emotions at seeing Nick Skelton take the title. "I've always tried to maintain a little professionalism along the way but when I called home the gold in Rio I don't mind telling that there were tears running down my face," he wrote.
