FINDON’S Tina Cook has helped Team GB to a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics this afternoon (Tuesday).

Cook’s final ride on Miners Frolic secured a guaranteed second-place finish for the Great Britain team.

Cook was the final Team GB rider to compete in the showjumping and her clear round with just one time fault fired them from fourth to second in the team standings.

She is also currently in fourth place in the individual event and will ride again later this afternoon in search of individual glory.

It is one better for Cook, who won individual and team bronze in Beijing four years ago.
