Tremain, Garrick, fl 1970s-2000s:Righto, Mark - clear this rail and you're in the team, mate! Otago Daily Times, 3 August 2000.

The rail, labelled 'NZOC investigation', of a horse jump has been dropped to ground level. Mr Hooper, of the NZ Olympic Committee, stands ready to watch the jump. Off-stage a voice (Mark Todd's) answers "No worries, Mr Hooper". The cartoon questions the thoroughness of the NZ Olympic Committee's 'inquiry' into the allegations that had been made in England's Sunday Mirror in June 2000 that Mark Todd, New Zealand's prominent equestrian, had been caught taking cocaine and indulging in unprotected homosexual intercourse. Todd's participation in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney was in jeopardy as the International Olympic Committee's anti-doping code specifically mentions Class A drugs like cocaine.
