This week British show-jumper Tim Stockdale has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. The 54-year-old told Horse&Hound that he felt “o.k.” but he had to wait for more results. First he had lost weight and therefore contacted a physician. First it was assumed that he had an ulcer but in the clinic they found the cancer. Currently it seems as if Stockdale has to undergo chemotherapy. In any case he will take a break from the sport.
