Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

Complete Swedish team has been announced too... Quite disappointing to see them suddenly ignoring pretty much all non-Olympic events (except endurance). :(

 

Also, quite shocking to see Sara Algotsson-Ostholt with Wega!! :yikes: That's her London 2012 Olympic silver medal horse, but since then they literally entered only one true eventing competition (basically to get a qualification)! It should be great to see them again after all that time.

I was surprised to see Tim Lips missing, but apparently he chose not to compete because his wife is due in September.


He was one of the favorites for the individual medal...

Odd decision, WEG is only once in four years, whereas he could have his wife pregnant again by Christmas.

 

:p

:SGP Caroline Chew did well to obtain WEG qualification score of 66% in likely her last chance competition.

 

With her qualification confirmed, we should see :HKG:PHI:SGP all making their dressage WEG debuts. :thumbup:

 

Caroline btw was the one who said the athlete's oath at the opening of 2010 YOG.

We've entered the very final week of qualification period, as the window for meeting minimum requirements in all disciplines will be closed on August 13th.

 

There aren't many competitions in midst of summer, however CDI Cappeln may be interesting, as both :GRE Jiochanna Androniki-Kordatzaki and :RSA Laurienne Dittmann will have their last ditch efforts to qualify for the Games. South African Olympic qualification very much depends on Dittmann's success, which is by no means a certain outcome.

:NZL New Zealand has named its eventing team.

Still gutted that Clarke Johnstone had to be scratched. :(

 

Still, not a bad team (as if any team with Jonelle Price could be considered bad), however there are some unexpected selections. They chose McClaren for Mark Todd? One could argue that's his 4th best horse, or at least 3rd! His nominally better horses have been named as reserves. Blyth and Dan are not bad (hell, Blyth was an Olympic champion), but still I can see them bringing troubles to NZ based on current form. :zip:

Only 60% for Dittmann in Cappeln today...

 

So this means the Group F team spot will be left unclaimed at WEG, as instead a special Group F qualifying event will be organized next year. Perhaps that's for the best, as instead of getting a spot by default, :RSA South Africa might actually face some competition (mainly from :PLE Palestine, possibly from :MAR Morocco).
