Twenty two riders move on to second round of the Olympic individual final

Wednesday, 08 August 2012

Clear after round one: Scott Brash and Hello Sanctos. Twenty two riders have moved on to the second round of the Olympic individual final to fight on for the medals. The lowest ranked riders are on a five penalty score, and include Cassio Rivetti/Temple Road, Paul Estermann/Castlefield Eclipse and Rich Fellers/Flexible. Estermann was especially unlucky in the first round with only a tiny foot in the water. Nine riders are on four faults; and out of these Rodrigo Pessoa’s Rebozo jumped amazing in the first round with a foot in the water  – while Simon Delestre/Napoli du Ry, Alberto Michan/Rosalia La Silla, Alvaro de Mirand/Rahmannshof's Bogeno, Ian Millar/Star Power, Daniel Bluman/Sancha, Edwina Tops-Alexander/Itot du Chateau, Ben Maher/Tripple X and Marc Houtzager/Tamino also produced great rounds, but had a fence down each.

Four riders are on a one penalty score after a time fault; Luciana Diniz/Lennox, Gerco Schröder /London, Pius Schwizer/Carlina and Kamal Bahamdan/Noblesse des Tess all had great rounds over Bob Ellis' very technical twelve fence track.

Six riders are left on a zero score ahead of the second round. The first clear of the day came from a very happy Cian O’Connor on Blue Loyd, then followed Olivier Guillon on Lord de Theize two riders later. Steve Guerdat on Nino des Buissonnets was also clear after a fantastic round, as was Scott Brash on Hello Sanctos who was cool as ice on home soil. Marcus Ehning rode a text book clear on Plot Blue, and Nick Skelton and Big Star did yet another amazing clear round – what a horse and rider! The second round starts at 14.55 GMT.
