Olympic Gold Medal
After the war he concentrated on show jumping, buying Foxhunter in 1947 after a long search. The duo were part of the British team that won a bronze medal in the team event at the 1948 Summer Olympics, winning the bronze medal. They captured the public imagination for their role in winning Great Britain's only gold medal at the 1952 Summer Olympics, in the team jumping equestrian event.
Foxhunter and Llewellyn won 78 international competitions during their joint career. Llewellyn later served widely in the administration of British show jumping, and was knighted in 1977 before inheriting the Llewellyn Baronetcy upon the death of his brother. His business activities, following the nationalisation of the coal industry in 1947, included interests in brewing and television. Following the 1952 Olympic win he set up a chain of cafes called Foxhunter.
Family and personal life
Their sons, Dai and Roddy, became well-known media personalities from the 1960s onwards, the former because of highly publicized relationships with Tessa Dahl and Orson Welles's daughter Beatrice, and the latter because of an eight-year affair with Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon.
