Tough competition in top of jumping

It is still the strong team from Sweden who is in the lead in the team competition, closely followed by the French, who is also taking the lead with their Julien Epaillard. 

The Agria FEI World Jumping Championship presented by Helgstrand at the ECCO FEI World Championships in Herning is ongoing, and the second round were finished this evening. The difficult course made the riders fight for the clear round, but the strong Swedish team delivered three of them and secured the lead once again.

“We had a wonderful day today and all the horses jumped super. It is a nice way to end the day being in the lead, but now we need to meet up and make a plan for tomorrow”, says the Chef d’Equipe, Henrik Ankarcrona, from Sweden.

The Frenchmen with their three clear rounds today are still placed 2nd, just a couple of faults behind the leading team.

On a 3rd place the German team is placed, and that is a jump in the ranking after yesterday’s ranking as number 6. On for tomorrow’s team final are besides the top-3, the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, Switzerland, Canada, Ireland, and Brazil.  

Under the floodlight the team finals are on tomorrow. Ten nations are ready to jump for the chance to win medals, but for sure the Swedes are going for the win.  

Sadly, for the home nation they did not get a spot in the team final, but there will still be three Danish riders competing in the competition tomorrow, which is open for the top-60 individually best placed riders.
