Leading up to Sunday's CSIO5* Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ of Greece, Rodrigo Giesteira Almeida (POR) and Angel Niagolov (BUL) have been the event's two biggest winners. 

With Kafka vd Heffinck (Calvaro x Diamant de Semilly), Rodrigo Giesteira Almeida topped Friday's CSIO5* 1.60m Longines Grand Prix. Stopping the clock at 39.05 seconds, the Portuguese rider was by far the fastest in the class. Wojciech Wojcianiec (POL) and Chintablue (Chintan x Chacco-Blue) followed in second place, with a time of 40.44 seconds while third place went to Geir Gulliksen (NOR) and Gin Chin van het Lindenhof (Chin Chin x Calido I) who stopped the clock at 40.47 seconds.

Angel Niagolov went off with the victory in Saturday's CSIO5* 1.40-1.60m FEI World Cup of Athens. Riding Condarco (Conthargos x Darco), Niagolov produced one of only two double clear rounds in this class – leaving Krzysztof Ludwiczak (POL) and Cros Blue (Chacco-Blue x Sandro Boy) behind him in second place. Third place went to Taizo Sugitani (JPN) and Heroine de Muze (Tinka's Boy x For Pleasure).
