showjumper Cian O'Connor has his sights set firmly on representing Ireland at the 2012 London Olympics.

The talented horseman, who was cleared of any wrongdoing after being stripped of his 2004 Olympic gold medal when traces of a banned substance were found in his horse, last night said that he has put the past to rest.

"A wiser man than me told me at the time to just look back at it as a hiccup in my career," he said.

He was speaking at the launch of the Discover Ireland Horse Show, which takes place at the RDS from August 3 to 7.
