Angie Darby

Angie Darby did not have an easy ride to the Beijing Olympics, with her selection appealed by Greek athlete Donna Vakalis. Vakalis lost an appeal against Darby, heard by the sport's governing body but maintaining that Darby's qualification score for the Olympics was ineligible, took the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Darby eventually won her case, with her position on the Team confirmed just days before the Games began. Darby’s strongest leg in the tough Beijing competition was her showjumping, placing seventh.
