Klimke, Germany on top after cross country

London, England (Sports Network) - Germany's Ingrid Klimke and Sweden's Sara Algotsson-Ostholt shared the individual eventing lead in equestrian after the cross country portion Monday.

Germany had the team lead, too, by a narrow margin over Great Britain with Sweden a close third.

Japan's Yoshiaki Oiwa, who had the individual lead after two days of dressage, was eliminated Monday after being unseated from his horse.

Klimke and Algotsson-Ostholt both have 39.30 penalty points. New Zealand's Mark Todd, chasing a third individual gold medal and first since 1988 at the age of 56, is in third place with 39.50 points and only jumping remaining Wednesday.

The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, Zara Phillips, was one of nine riders who finished without time penalties on the track at Greenwich Park.

Eventing combines dressage, cross-country and jumping. The individual and team competition run concurrently and medals are awarded for both.
