In terms of Olympic qualification, shame for Japan to lose a rider and drop out of Olympic qualification position. The Group F/G qualifier has gone from an opportunity for a weaker nation to :AUS and :JPN being big favourites. Of course, with eventing a surprise elimination can happen.

Obviously this helps Europe quite a bit as they now have 5 nations plus France qualified. The Group A/B qualifier will have :BEL and :ITA as favourites which opens up the Nations Cup quota (assuming :AUS :BRA :CAN :JPN :POL all get the job done). We could see qualification from  :AUT :ESP or :NED maybe even :DEN should they make a push.

Ros Canter was the drop score for GBR Team at the end of dressage phase and ends up being the top counter them at the end of show jumping. Never seen that happen before.

 

To make it worse, she misses out on the bronze medal because she went round the cross country course too quickly :(

Excellent to have three continents on the team podium.


First title for :GER Germany since 2014 WEG. It's been a while. :USA United States is back after a long drought and really a tough period. First global team medal since Athens 2004! :NZL New Zealand is back on podium for the first time since London 2012.

Meanwhile, Great Britain fails to win a team medal at the World for the first time since Kentucky 1978. :yikes:

 

Canada won back then. Their strategy, famously known to this day, was to go clear at all costs. They were incredibly slow in fact, but thanks to the course being an absolute riot, it was enough for a comfortable gold medal. :p

Wow.

 

Literal replay of Tryon 2018. German leader drops the last fence down to award the gold to Briton...

In fairness to Izzy, who was competing at her first ever major championship (European, World or Olympic), it wasn't awarded it was earned with a brilliant performance throughout. Amazingly close finish with seven riders covered by a fence. Ditto the team event with teams 2-4 within 0.6 pts of each other and less than 6 pts covering the top four. Another equestrian event where you end up almost jumping with the riders! 😊

 

P.S. Useless fact - She's the sixth British woman to win the world title after Mary Gordon-Watson, Lucinda Green, Virginia Leng, Zara Tindall and Ros Canter but we're still waiting for our first male individual winner.
