Germany's Michael Jung wins Badminton Horse Trials to take triple-crown

Michael Jung has won the richest prize in three-day eventing at the horse trials in England. The victory also gives the Olympic and European champion a Grand Slam.

Jung captured the Slam after winning consecutive titles at Burghley in England, the United States' Kentucky event and Badminton on Sunday to claim a jackpot worth 305,000 euros ($347,000).

The 33-year-old equestrian also won a separate 95,000 euro prize for coming first at Badminton.

The German led from start to finish on his London 2012 gold-medal winning horse La Biosthetique-Sam and sealed his 'treble' with a flawless show-jumping round.

Before Jung's success on Sunday, the only rider to have completed this treble was Britain's Pippa Funnell, 13 years ago.
