Michael Jung (born 31 July 1982 Bad Soden am Taunus, Germany) is a German equestrian.[1] At the 2012 Summer Olympics he competed in both the team and the individual eventing, winning both. On 31 July 2012, his 30th birthday, he made eventing history becoming the first rider to ever hold the Olympic, World and European championship titles at the same time. All three titles were won on the same horse La Biothesque Sam.
