From the Olympics in Mexico City 1968 and the times when the fences were really big and scary. Like this oxer 1.70 x 2.20 m from the second round of the individual competition. According to some riders this oxer was actually over 1.80 m high. And when the water jumps were no less than 5 meters. Jumping it here is the incredible silver medal winner Stroller and Marion Coakes.

Marion Mould on Stroller made an incredible achievement winning silver medal in the individual jumping at Olympics in Mexico City 1968. A small miracle on little Stroller. But then in the team competition, on another extremely huge course, they had big problems and were disqualified.
