Day 7 of the Tokyo Olympics will see India's only athlete in the sport of Equestrian, Fouaad Mirza, competing in the eventing category. Fouaad becomes only the third-ever Indian rider to compete at the Olympic Games.

Fouaad will be competing at the games with his gelding Seigneur Medicott. He had initially planned to compete with another horse named, Dajara 4, but changed his mind just days before the start of the Olympics and selected Seigneur Medicott as his partner with whom he won two silver medals at the 2018 Asian Games.

Earlier in the day, Mirza and his equine went through a veterinary inspection. The inspection is a standard procedure before any Equestrian event and it is conducted to assess the wellness of the horse on health parameters and clearing it to compete in the events. Medicott cleared the inspection and the 15-year-old was certified as sound in health.

Fouaad Mirza and Seigneur Medicott will be competing in three disciplines of eventing - Dressage, Cross Country and Jumping.
