Jung, riding Sam – with whom he also won at London 2012 – produced a flawless round in the concluding jumping phase at the Deodoro equestrian center.The imperious Jung was collecting his third Olympic title after also claiming team eventing gold on Sam four years ago.The only two riders to have won successive Olympic individual eventing titles are Charles Pahud de Mortanges of the Netherlands in 1928-32 and Mark Todd in 1984-88 .With Burton picking up eight faults to finish fifth Jung sealed the title with a glorious clear round.
