Vote for Hickstead & Eric Lamaze as Canada’s athlete of the year

Sunday, 20 November 2011

Give them your vote; Eric & Hickstead in Leipzig where they became second in the World Cup final! Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.Hickstead and Eric Lamaze have been nominated as Canada’s athlete of the year on Canada’s national public broadcaster CBC has nominated twelve athletes, and you can vote for leading nominees Eric & Hickstead here.

About the nomination CBC writes; It was a tragic end to a brilliant career and an equally brilliant season. This one is not about the sympathy vote. Under Lamaze's guidance Hickstead remained the No. 1 ranked show jumping horse in the world in 2011. He had prestigious Grand Prix wins in Rome and La Baule, France. Hickstead also won the richest event in the sport, the CN International at Spruce Meadows, for the second time. Lamaze and Hickstead were also close silver medallists at the FEI Grand Prix Final in Leipzig, Germany. Lamaze and Hickstead were inseparable and as a tandem they were the very best in the world this season and maybe for all-time.
