Star rider paves way for China to make equestrian history at the Tokyo Olympics

In 2008, Alex Hua Tian became the first rider from mainland China to compete in an Olympic Games equestrian competition when he qualified for the eventing category in Hong Kong. He was also the only rider at those Games from China, which did not have an Olympic equestrian team at the time. He has since established himself as China's leading eventing rider and has helped open the door for other athletes from mainland China to take up the sport. After a respectable eighth place at the 2016 Olympics in Rio and competing as an individual since then, Hua Tian will be part of the first-ever Chinese team to compete in the Olympics at this year's Tokyo Games.
