Denis Lynch will not compete with the Irish Olympic show jumping team, it has been announced.

Horse Sport Ireland have confirmed their decision not to proceed with the Tipperary man’s nomination following the disqualification of Lynch's mount Lantinus during the Nations Cup event at Aachen last week.

Show Jumping team manager Robert Splaine will now put forward another combination from amongst his list of reserves, which includes Cian O’Connor who was disqualified at the Games in Athens in 2004.
