RIO: The France team is having a difficult moment in Rio, after the accident occured to Simon Delestre's horse, now it is the Penelope Leprevost top horse Flora de Mariposa that is having a difficult moment just before the beginning of the Show jumping Olympic Game.

Yesterday Penelope wrote on her facebook page:"Flora has actually been the victim of a beginning of colic last night, and we have therefore made the decision that she does not participate in the warmup. Today she's better, we keep a very close eye on his state of form and we will decide tomorrow whether or not to start the competition.."

Few hours later Penelope wrote again:"Flora makes us tremble... but all the lights seem to be green tonight! The latest veterinary examinations are reassuring, and Flora even seems to be in great shape. The order of departure scheduled for tomorrow should therefore be: Philippe Rozier - Kevin Staut - Roger Yves Bost - and Flora!
Of course we remain very vigileants, but the difficult episode seems to be behind us!"
