The Olympics are happening. Germany has won 21 medals so far, and is doing especially well in the equestrian and rowing fields. Dressage is the special strong suit of the team, and it has "dominated" for the past 50 years. Member Kristina Sprehe has broken the Olympic record for a Grand Prix test, as has Helen Langehanenberg. The average score for the Germans in dressage is 78.845.
In other German Olympic news, David Storl has won a silver medal in the shotput, and Croatia, undefeated in 2012 has been beaten by the German quadruple sculls team.
