We're now joined in the studio by the man himself, Alex Hua Tian.

Q1: You have been described as one in a billion, a fitting monikker as you're China's only representative in equestrian at the Olympics. During the recent Summer Games in Rio, you had your best result ever with an eighth place finish in individual eventing. Can you tell us about that experience and how it might have been different from your first Olympics in Beijing, 2008?

Q2: Equestrian is a unique sport as it's not all about you, it's really all about teamwork between you and your horse. You qualified two horses for Rio, Harbour Pilot C and Don Geniro, but only took Don to Brazil. Can you tell us about how important it is to build a strong relationship with your horse and how you go about choosing one and doing that?

Q3: As China's top equestrian competitor, you have a unique role in helping to build the sport here in China. What are you doing to encourage more people to get on a horse?

Q4: So what's next for you? What big competitions are you working towards and what are your goals in equestrian?
