Cool. :d And yes, it's similar to canoe slalom. If you knock a ball down you get five seconds penalty.

 

Here is an example of a full competition run. :)

 

 

Thanks a lot, I found another FEI sport that I like :)

There is just one more qualifier left before the jumping Finals in Omaha. It will be held next month in Live Oak (North American qualifier).

 

Here is an overview of the other (completed) leagues.

 

ARAB LEAGUE - :QAT Al Thani, :KSA Alrajhi and :QAT Mohammed have earned a ticket for WC final

AUSTRALIAN LEAGUE - :AUS Beresford and :AUS Raymont have earned their tickets. Raymont already confirmed that he won't be going though. Beresford is uncertain.

CAUCASUS LEAGUE - :GEO Papiashivili qualified, participation uncertain

CENTRAL ASIAN LEAGUE - :UZB Tuyakbaev qualified, participation uncertain

CHINA LEAGUE - :CHN Bianba is apparently going to Omaha, :HKG Lam is uncertain

JAPAN LEAGUE - :JPN Koike qualified, participation uncertain

NEW ZEALAND LEAGUE - :NZL Laurie qualified but will not attend

SOUTH AFRICA LEAGUE - :RSA Williams qualified, participation uncertain

SOUTH AMERICAN NORTH LEAGUE - :VEN Vanonoste qualified, participation uncertain

SOUTH AMERICAN SOUTH LEAGUE - :URU Rodriguez Vanni and :BRA Fernandez Filho will be going to Omaha

SOUTH EAST ASIAN LEAGUE - :THA Limpichati qualified, participation uncertain

 

However, Omaha website says that :GEO and :UZB have both "confirmed" their places. That would be so awesome if true. :d

:ARG Maria Florencia Manfredi has been invited to take part at the dressage WC final in Omaha in few weeks! :thumbup::cheer:@konig

 

I love her reaction in this interview: “Amazing!” the 34-year-old rider exclaimed after she was told she had qualified for the final of the 32nd World Cup Final. “I can’t believe it. I need to go celebrate tonight." :d

http://www.dressage-news.com/2017/03/01/maria-florencia-manfredi-becomes-first-argentine-to-win-dressage-world-cup-final-start/

 

She will be the first Argentine rider to compete in the history of dressage WC finals. She got invited as the highest ranked rider outside of Europe/North America/Pacific.

 

It's sad that she apparently has zero support from Argentinian NOC & federation, according to this interview. :(

It's true, I just checked the list and it seems only Jumping athletes receive state support.

Like many argentinians, she is decendent from italians, between descendent of spanish and italians, you have at least the 50% por the argentinians (in my case both, my last name is Orlandi), argentinians who traveled to Italy told to me that the most part of you dont know nothing about this :p

Today we had the Grand Prix qualifier in dressage.

... full results

 

 

Tomorrow is the final day of the show. Highlights include...

Dressage Grand Prix Special at 8:30 (6:30 CET)

It's the intermission in the jumping competition, 6 clears in the 1st round. 2nd round will start in about 30 mins.

 

EDIT: It was Scott Brash who claimed the win at the end.

 

Meanwhile. dressage competitions are completed. :GER Werth won the freestyle with 81%, :DEN Dufour second with 80%, :DEN Kasprzak third with 78%. Another Dane, Rikke Svane, was also in top 6, so excellent day for them. :)

 

However, the highlight was Anna Kasprzak performing the incredible "vertigo sequence" of flying changes (or however that sequence is called :p)... Too bad that judges didn't really reward her that much. Must have been the first time that someone successfully performed such sequence. Incredibly difficult.

@OlympicIRL Judy Reynolds won the big Signal Iduna Cup freestyle in Dortmund yesterday, first 5* victory. Quite a moment to see Irish anthemn being played in front of few thousand spectators, as it's the case in Germany. :)

Wow, that is fantastic news! :bounce:

I never thought I would see the day that an Irish rider wins a 5 star event in dressage and to do it in Germany in front of a big crowd is even more special. Very proud of our duo :)
