Rio 2016 Olympics: N Ireland three-day eventer Clare Abbott aiming for Games

Hillsborough-based three-day eventer Clare Abbott is well placed to represent Ireland at the Olympics in August.

Abbott, 29, finished 11th in the recent Olympic qualifier in Fontainebleau as she helped the Ireland team finish in third spot.

Another good performance in the upcoming Tattersalls Horse Trials in County Meath in early June will put the Northern Irishwoman in a strong position to clinch an Olympic place.
