He works all day as a dentist. Outside work he helps his wife look after their three teenage children.

He also finds time to be a double Olympic equestrian champion. Hinrich won two gold medals at Beijing in eventing and hopes to repeat his success at London.

Eventing has three equestrian skills: dressage (a bit like ballet on a horse), cross-country and show-jumping.

Hinrich has a very tough schedule and fits in training for all three events around his job and family commitments.
