New Zealand Olympic legend Mark Todd has achieved almost all he can in his sport, but he is still hungry for more success after being officially confirmed in the eventing team for London.
Todd, along with eventing team-mate Andrew Nicholson, will make New Zealand Olympic history as he competes at his seventh Olympic games.
Speaking to ONE News from Berkshire, England, the 56-year-old admitted he'd surprised himself with his longevity in the sport.
"When I first started off it was great to get to my first Olympics, that was in Los Angeles, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that I'd still be doing it all these years later," Todd said.
"I'm very fortunate that I've had the backing, I've got the horses and I'm fit enough to be able to go to yet another one."
The 28 years of Olympic competition have been fruitful for Todd, with four medals to his name, including two golds, making him one of the country's most successful Olympians.
After returning to the Olympic fold in Beijing and producing an impressive win at the Badminton Horse Trials last year, Todd said he is keen to add to that medal tally.
"I'm only there for one thing and that's to try and win," he said.
"I had eight years off and I got re-enthused and re-energised by it and I'm as hungry now as I ever was. I don't feel any different to how I did 20 years ago.
"I'm really happy with my form leading into it, I'm happy with my horse, we've got a great team and we've got everything to look forward to."
Todd has had to overcome some difficulty on his way to qualifying for London with the horse he rode to a win at Badminton ruled out, forcing him to qualify on a second horse, Campino.
"My number one horse Land Vision unfortunately had a recurring injury, but in a funny way this horse, I always thought I'd end up bringing him here.
"He's less experienced, but he's a young horse, he's very talented in all three phases and improving literally day by day and I think he can be competitive after the dressage, he's a good jumper and I'm really hopeful that he can go well."
And while it would be reasonable to expect that this year's games will be Todd's Olympic swansong, he is not prepared to write off a tilt at Rio in four years' time.
"Who knows?" Todd laughed. "I'll only be 60 for the next one."
