CALGARY, Alberta – Ian Millar will appear in a record 10th Olympics this month when the 65-year-old equestrian enters the show jumping ring at the London Games.
Millar is about to surpass Austrian sailor Hubert Raudaschl, who was a nine-time Olympian from 1964 to 1996. Millar calls it a "great thrill" and says he "never had a grand plan" about this milestone.
Millar's Olympic career spans 40 years. In fact, he could have been riding in his 11th Olympics this month. He made his country's team in 1980, but Canada didn't compete in Moscow because of a boycott.
