No Olympics for Nagel and Corradina

Saturday, 30 June 2012

Sad news - Nagel and Corradina won´t make it to the Olympics. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Carsten-Otto Nagel has decided to not ride at CHIO Aachen with Corradina. The mare isn´t back in the needed shape after her tooth problems earlier this year. Aachen was the last chance for the fantastic championship couple to prove that they belong on the Olympic team.

"Of course I am sad, but with Corradina in mind it is the right decision,"says Carsten-Otto to the German federation.

Nagel and Corradina is an amazing championship couple with team gold from the WEG in 2010, European team gold from Madrid in 2011, European team bronze at Windsor in 2009 and individual European silver medal from Windsor in 2009. It is thus a big loss for the German team that Nagel and Corradina can´t take part at the Olympics this year.

"It is a shame that this couple, that has been outstanding the last years, can´t be in Aachen so that they could be considered for Olympic selection," says the German Chef dÉquipe Otto Becker.
