It has been announced that Germany’s Matthias Rath and Totilas will not compete at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Rath is said to be suffering from glandular fever, which will prevent him from attending the event.

This is, of course, a blow to the German Team, who were strong gold medal contenders. The team consists of Helen Langehanenberg on Damon Hill, Kristina SpreheĀ on Desperados and Dorothee Schneider on Diva Royal.
