The 3rd Annual Zoomer List: Canada’s Top 45 Over 45: Ian Millar

Ian Millar, 65, Equestrian Show Jumper

The lanky six-foot-one rider, a.k.a. Captain Canada, made the records books in London 2012 by being the only athlete ever to compete in 10 Olympic Games. That he also managed a personal best, finishing fifth individually, was icing on the cake. Millar won a team silver medal in Hong Kong’s Beijing Games in 2008 and isn’t ruling out an 11th Olympic appearance. “My first Olympics was Munich in 1972. I am better now than I was then, in knowledge and experience -The horse I have right now is Star Power.  If he’s willing to go to Rio, I’m willing.  If Star Power wants to go, he cannot go without me.”
