| Canada's Lamaze wins gold in equestrian|

|Hong Kong, China (Sports Network) - Canada's Eric Lamaze and his horse, Hickstead, won the gold medal in the individual jumping competition after capturing a jump-off with Sweden's Rolf-Goran Bengtsson Thursday night at the Olympics.|
Bengtsson and his horse, Ninja, were first out in the jump off, but the last fence went down and Lamaze was able to play it safe on his try, incredibly finishing with the same time at 38.39 seconds in the jump-off. The difference of course was the four penalties incurred by Bengtsson.
"My horse is really careful," said Lamaze. "You can count on him to give you 100 percent effort. I have all the confidence in the world (in him). He makes my job very easy."
