Australian dressage rider Lyndal Oatley will compete against her husband at the London Olympics.
Oatley has won selection for Australia's three-strong dressage team for London, also featuring Lyndal's cousin Kristy Oatley and four-time Olympian Mary Hanna.
Lyndal, at her first Olympics, will compete against husband Patrik Kittel, who is on the Swedish team.
"When it comes to competing with Patrik, we are very used to competing against one another and we are still happily married," Lyndal said in a statement today.
"So we know how to balance life and our sport, and must be doing it right so we change nothing."
Lyndal, 32, said her desire to ride dressage at an Olympics was fuelled by watching cousin Kristy at the Sydney Games a dozen years ago.
Kristy turned in Australia's best Olympic dressage finish in 2000 - ninth in the individual event and sixth in the teams.
The Oatley cousins topped Australia's qualification process for London, while stalwart Hanna, at age 57, will become the first Australian dressage rider to compete at four Olympic Games.
