Andrew Hoy just can't stop adding to his Olympic medal haul, becoming the oldest Australian ever to get on the podium.

The 62-year-old played a crucial role in Australia claiming silver in the team eventing, Hoy returned for another dazzling display aboard Vassily de Lassos to win the bronze medal in the individual eventing final at Tokyo.

He had improved his individual position from seventh to fourth following his clear round aboard Vassily de Lassos in the jumping team final to secure team silver alongside Kevin McNab and Shane Rose at Equestrian Park.
