So, we start a new season, traditionally with Budapest Indoor Competition. Big success for the club from Székesfehérvár - among men Bence Demeter won, István Málits was third (Simon Casse of France was between them), while among women Sarolta Kovács finished second (lost to a great Belarussian talent Iryna Prasiantsova, outstanding runner). Another Hungarian on the podium was Anna Zs. Tóth from Újpest.

Italian girls were impossible that day - all four of them were in the top four places after first running lap, but Laura and Ilke destroyed this "dolce vita" (though the real "dolce vita" was at the after party on Sunday evening).

But coming back to Alice - just two days later big tragedy for her - at the beginning of the mounting for the mixed relays she had problems with her horse, who got really nervous. I didn't see this, but those who were there said me the whole story - one of the referees was holding the horse to help her calm it down. She asked the referee not to, so he let it go. The horse stood up on its back legs and she fell off - she wasn't even on the sand yet, she fell down on a concrete and broke her wrist. I heard the medicals being called by the announcer and turn my head there (I was sitting near the mounting area, but watching the main parcour), one of Polish young athletes came down there to see what's happened and told me the story.

does anyone have an idea about particpants of champion of champions tournament which will start in OCT.20 ? 

:GBR Choong and Muir are only ones I'm sure of - their participation is confirmed on PentathlonGB webiste.

:BLR Maybe (just suppose) Prasiantsova, who doesn't participate in U24 Europeans, though Belarus sends strong team.

:ITA Maybe, they are training normally

:FRA As well as Italians

:GER Maybe Schleu, I'm not sure but I think she wrote something about it few weeks ago on Facebook. Schöneborn married not so long ago, but last year Khuraskina came to CISM World Championships right after her honeymoon and won it. They also don't send anyone to U24 Europeans to Drzonków, though this age category is also for Marvin Dogue, Christian Zillekens and Alexandra Bettinelli.
:TUR Maybe Özyüksel, there was some competition lately in Turkey, seems like National Championships (unfortunately I didn't check it in details), so they may be training now normally.

 

No go:

:POL Nowacka, who is on holiday in Balkans. We have this U24 Europeans in Drzonków, so other seniors might come to support their younger colleagues. And all our national team coaches will be there, so probably only Maliszewska might come with her club coach to Doha (but I doubt it, as her boyfriend, Stasiak, will start in her home city and there was no document of selection signed by sports director as it is usually done for the UIPM competition, which is all competitions instead of the only commercial one - Kremlin Cup, and CISM competitions).

:HUN Kovács is on holiday in Rome, Földházi seems not to train now as well, she took part in some "BBQ World Cup". Bence Demeter had hip surgery. In fact I doubt any of Hungarians will be in Doha - both "association captains" (they call their main coaches this way in Hungarian) are to come to Drzonków. Though somebody might go either without a coach or with a club coach.

:EGY Hefny has some pain and doesn't run - posted on Instagram photo from horse riding training.
:CZE Kuf was on some trip in mountains, even if it was part of training, not the kind it should be done few days before competition in the desert.

:RUS They had holiday lastly, I think - some of their women's pentathletes posted photos in bikini by the sea in last days/weeks, so I suppose they wouldn't start in a competition without training.
