Time for Event #3 in our IMAGINARY SUMMER OLYMPICS series.

 

These are olympic champions in certain event.

Imagine that all these champions are on the top of their game at the very same moment in time.

Who would have won gold?

 

Be aware that the voting ends at Wednesday March 2nd, 8 p.m. CET.

 

Imaginary olympics take place In Poland, obviously.

That means rather flat cross terrain, maybe some small hills, climate like typical Middle Europe summer, not very hot, maybe it rains.

 

We don't necessarily choose the best ones, the world record holders. These pollls are like event start lists, who would win, what you think?

@dcro any tips for that one?

Mark Todd and Charisma have grown a cult status during their career together so I have to go with them. From the surprise win in Los Angeles, to a repeat in Seoul by which time they became invincible, essentially.

 

Charisma was a tiny horse, which helped their cult status to grow.

yes, I agree, also for me the no. 1 is Mark Todd and Charisma, obviously

 

But who would you place as no. 2 and no. 3?

Jung would be second imo. The vintage Jung from 2010-2016, that is, not his imposter with mediocre results since 2017. :p

 

As for the third, Pahud de Mortanges is with Todd and Jung the only other rider who have won consecutive Olympics on the same horse. Hugely impressive since the wins came in Amsterdam and Los Angeles, and getting to LA back then was a bit of a challenge to say the least.

 

Or maybe Julia Krajewski? The first woman to win the title (several came really close before her though, most notably Karen Stives in 1984, Bettina Hoy in 2004 and Sara Algotsson in 2012)

 

Then there is David O'Connor, the last champion of the long format. Richard Meade is a name everyone is familiar with too. Guyon and Coffin won events in 1968/1976, which were perhaps the toughest ever.

I don't follow enough the Equestrian Sports to give a qualified opinion on this poll...:dunno:

 

so, I only voted for Mark Todd because it's the name I read/heard more about in the very few occasions I watched Eventing competitions (Olympics and WEG only, basically)...

Why you always choose events, I have no idea about? ;)

Poll #4 will be badminton - men's singles

Poll #5 will be gymnastics artistic - women's uneven bars

Poll #6 will be canoe slalom - men's C1

Poll #7 will be wrestling freestyle - category tba

 

But you @FancyFenchel choose an event for Poll #8, let us know in the comments ;)
