Jamaican equestrienne Samantha Albert will have to wait and see where she finishes after completing her individual eventing competition at the Olympic Games with a 21.00 penalty point performance in the show-jumping section at Greenwich Park this morning.

Albert, who scored 67.20 in the Dressage on Saturday and 54.00 in yesterday's cross country aboard Irish gelding CARRAIG DUBH, closes with a combined penalty score of 142.20.

The 41 year-old will now be hoping that her score is good enough to place her among the top 25 riders, which would give her another show jumping ride later this afternoon in the medal round.

Albert was the first rider in the park this morning but started the day ranked in last place at number 59.
