In our latest sponsor 123 feature we talk to Gilles Albaredes, the managing director of Crystal CG International, about his excitement in helping to bring the London 2012 Opening and Closing Ceremonies to life and look back on his fond memories of watching fellow Frenchman Guy Drut win gold at Montreal 1976.

Canadian show jumper Ian Millar holds the record for the most Olympic appearances by an athlete in any sport. When he competed at London 2012 at the age of 65 it was the tenth time he had competed in the Games since making his debut 30 years earlier at Munich 1972. He had won his only Olympic medal at Beijing 2008 when he was part of Canada’s team that took silver in the team jumping event. Millar won a gold medal in the Pan American Games team jumping event at Toronto 2015. He announced his retirement in 2019.
