Provisional overall dressage ranking after Doha Grand Prix (top 6 will earn quotas)

 

Marcela Krinke Susmelj (SUI) 1005

Fanny Verliefden (BEL) 1000

Agnete Kirk Thinggaard (DEN) 989

Judy Reynolds (IRL) 977

Inna Logutenkova (UKR) 964

Goncalo Carvalho (POR) 956

Lars Petersen (DEN) 955

Jorinde Verwimo (BEL) 946

Beata Stremler (POL) 944

Daniel Bachmann Andersen (DEN) 940

Jeroen Devroe (BEL) 940

Others are too far back to have a realistic chance for quota.

Beata Stremler scores 72.760% in Dortmund. That was a great performance and a great score, but not enough to enter Olympic qualification zone. She now has 950 points and she will need something big in her last competition.

Further updates...

Yvonne Losos de Muniz (DOM) scored 64.520% with Foco Loco and 63.640% with Dondolo Las Marismas in Wellington. She improves her points to 646 (Foco Loco) and 644 (Dondolo Las Marismas), respectively. Maria Manfredi (ARG) scored only 62% and stays on 612 points. One more competition, but looks like Dominican Republic will qualify for the first time ever in equestrian. Petersen (DEN) scored 71.080%, not enough to improve his 955 points. Winner was Trussell (CAN) with 73.700%.

Nicole Smith (RSA) scored 64% in Lier. Better than few days ago but not enough to influence Group F rankings. Quota will go to Palestine, also for the first time in equestrian. Verliefden (BEL) 72.220%, Verwimp (BEL) 70.460%, Devroe (BEL) 69.840%. Once again none of the Belgians improve points. Winner was Tebar (FRA) with 74.800%.

After today's Grand Prix competitions all of the riders basically have one more competition (either Special or Freestyle).

In eventing, Lauren Billys (PUR) is the leader in Paso Robles after dressage. Basically, she needs to win that event (and reach minimum score requirements at the same time) in order to secure her Olympic spot. Any other outcome and her destiny will be in the hands of others.

Barroca d'Alva, Portugal - In CCI3* Karin Donckers (BEL) with Fletcha van't Verahof and Victoria Scott (RSA) are 1st and 6th after dressage. Spisak (POL) is 9th, Wettstein (ECU) is 10th, Donckers (with Gini) is 12th, Kitajima (JPN) 13th, d'Andrimont (BEL) 14th, Donckers (with Grandioz) 15th. Top 25% of starters are receiving "significant" points for eventing rankings and in Barroca d'Alva events 25% equals Top 6 places, so it's all important to finish in Top 6. In CIC3* Kruger (ZIM) is 10th after dressage and she is pretty much the only one competing in CIC3* with Olympic qualification hopes.

 

And here is an interesting interview with Judy Reynolds about those crazy scores from Russians and Logutenkova. Thankfully though, she probably saved her Olympic participation today. http://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/other-sports/olympics-furore-dismays-judy-reynolds-385532.html

Lauren Billys did it, she won the Paso Robles event! She did what she had to and now she has 88 rankings points, what should be enough to qualify her for Rio (and qualify Puerto Rico for the first time since 2004).

It was quite a strange competition actually because all of the eventing disciplines (dressage, cross-country and jumping) were held in one day. I didn't know that was possible, but I guess that was because only 4 athletes competed.

Reynolds scores 79.700% in freestyle. Amazing performance, don't need to calculate her point anymore because she is in Rio. :)

Winner is Patrik Kittel (SWE) who was also amazing, 82.500%.

I am not sure Colombia is going to accept quotas in equestrian. They publish list of qualified athletes regularly but never include equestrian :(

I very much doubt that. Colombia has some excellent jumpers.

New updates...

Jeroen Devroe (BEL) scored 75.825% in Lier Freestyle. Good enough to improve his points from 940 to 946, but not enough to enter Olympic zone. And since this was his last competition he can no longer earn a place for Belgium. Inna Logutenkova scored 71% in Grand Prix, she stays on 964 points. Competition is still going on, Olympic contender Verwimp to come, live stream here http://www.worlddressagemasters.com/wdm-live

It was a very hard day for some riders in Barroca d'Alva. Olympic hopes of some have just vanished. Spisak (POL) and d'Andrimont (BEL) failed to finish cross-country so they can say goodbye Rio. Victora Scott (RSA) also, she finished though but with a lot of penalites. Actually, after today's cross-country in Barroca all of the Euopean and Asian quotas in eventing can no longer change. This means that Italy, Russia and Switzerland have qualified composite team, well done to them, especially to Switzerland. Wettstein (ECU) is 5th in CCI3*. If he stays in Top 6 he might earn quota for Ecuador, but it also depends on what other South American competitiors are going to do in Quillota qualifiers. Hayley Parker (RSA) is 8th after cross. She needs to get into Top 6 to earn a quota for South Africa. Kruger (ZIM) didn't finish cross-country too, so she can just sit and wait to see if Parker gets in Top 6 or not.
