Daniel Deusser‘s personal Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping journey has begun

Next Stop: CHI Geneva

With his victory in the Rolex Grand Prix at the CHIO Aachen 2021, the show-jumper Daniel Deusser’s personal Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping journey has also begun. His win in Aachen was also his first Major victory, he has never triumphed in Aachen, at the CHI Geneva, the Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ or at “The Dutch Masters” in `s-Hertogenbosch before. “In the scope of these four Majors, the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping has a huge tradition and of course I will try my very hardest to win a further show.” Daniel Deusser will attempt to achieve this feat at the CHI Geneva from December 9th-12th.

The system of the Rolex Grand Slam is simple: Anyone, who wins three shows in a row, receives 1 million Euros on top of the prize-money of each show. If that same rider then continues their success by winning a fourth Major in succession, they will be rewarded with an additional 1 million Euro bonus. Moreover, anyone who wins two out of the four shows, also receives a bonus. If two shows are won in succession, the bonus is 500,000 Euros. If the rider is successful in qualifying for the “Two out of four mode”, but doesn’t claim the victories at two consecutive shows, the bonus total 250,000 Euros. Scott Brash from Great Britain is the only rider so far to have pulled off this coup, namely winning three out of four Major shows in succession – and thus go down in sporting history.
