Andrew Hoy

 Andrew Hoy made history in 2021 becoming the only athlete to represent Australia at eight Olympic Games. 

Andrew hails from Culcairn, NSW where he grew up on his parents farm and was a member of the pony club in the nearby town of Holbrook.

Andrew has been a consistent equestrian performer in both team events and as an individual. He has one of the finest reputations when it comes to representing his country, and is considered a stalwart competitor for Australia. 

After making his Olympic debut in Los Angeles in 1984, the three-time Olympic gold medallist went on to became only the 13th athlete in Olympic history to make eight Games.

After Australia's equestrian team won the three-day event at the 2000 Sydney Games, crowd members were chanting: "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Hoy, Hoy, Hoy." They were congratulating all four members of the team (Phillip Dutton, Matt Ryan, and Stuart Tinney), but this variation on the normal cry was a salute to Hoy, who had just become the first Australian other than Dawn Fraser to win three gold medals in a row. Andrew also won silver in the individual event. 

At the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Andrew was 62-years-old when he won Olympic Eventing Team Silver and Individual Bronze, surpassing Eventing legend Bill Roycroft , who was aged 61 at the Montreal 1976 Olympic Games, to become the oldest Australian male competitor at an Olympics. 

Andrew has numerous accolades to his name which include six Olympic medals, three Olympic gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze, as well as many other notable international performances. 

Andrew was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2000 for his contribution to the sport of equestrian.
