The individual final at the Agria FEI Jumping World Championship in images, part one

Tuesday, 16 August 2022
ECCO FEI World Championships 2022

We look back at Sunday's individual final at the Agria FEI Jumping World Championship 2022 in Herning, Denmark, which brought the spectators to the edge of their seats. 

Louis Konickx’s first-round track for the individual final was both delicate and technical, and it was especially the line from the open water at no. 8 on seven following or eight short strides to a tall upright at no. 9 and then five following or six short strides to an oxer-upright combination at no. 10ab that looked particularly challenging to ride. Nevertheless, 14 of the 21 horse-and-rider combinations that had qualified to compete managed to clear the course – and one pair that made it look easy was Switzerland’s Pius Schwizer and Vancouver de Lanlore, who jumped themselves up to finish 14th overall. Not a bad way for Schwizer to celebrate turning 60 this weekend!

The swan’s popularity probably derives because of its role in “the Ugly Duckling” by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Greek rider Ioli Mytilineou impressed again when jumping the first clear in round one of the individual final, to finish 19th overall with L'Artiste de Toxandra.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Belgium's Nicola Philippaerts jumped a fantastic clear in the first round of the individual final, having his hands full with the feisty Katanga vh Dingeshof.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Canada's Tiffany Foster has impressed in Herning, and moved on to the last round of the championship after going clear with Figor in round one of the individual final.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ For Great Britain's Scott Brash and Hello Jefferson it was not to be. After a strong start to the championship, the pair had two down in the team final and then a rail on the vertical at no. 9 fell in the first round of the individual final – dropping them down to finish 17th overall.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Harrie Smolders and Monaco N.O.P. had a rail down on 10b in the first round of the individual final, and finished 15th overall.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ These two!! Cayman Jolly Jumper is an extraordinary horse in every way, and with Simon Delestre in the saddle he is flourishing. The pair was best of the French and jumped their way into the last round of the championship, with a clear in Sunday's first round of the individual final.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Maikel van der Vleuten showed some seriously impressive riding to guide Beauville Z N.O.P. to a clear in round one of the individual final, moving himself upwards ahead of the very last round in Herning.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Faltic HB replaced Explosion W for Ben Maher, and really impressed in his championship debut when making it all the way to the last round in Herning.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Showjumping is full of ups and downs. After a fantastic clear round on Friday, Israel's Daniel Bluman and Ladriano Z got in trouble in the turn to the wall in Sunday's first round of the individual final and dropped down ten places to finish 16th overall.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ A focused Max Kühner, who did a clear round with Elektric Blue P to move himself upwards on the standings to sit fourth ahead of the last round.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Unfortunately for Switzerland's Martin Fuchs, the front pole on the oxer at no. 4 fell to the ground, which dropped him and Leone Jei out of contention for a medal. Fuchs was sitting 4th ahead of the individual final.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Belgium's Jerome Guery and Quel Homme de Hus delivered, and moved on to the last round without adding any penalties to their overall score – keeping their bronze position.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Jens Fredricson pleased the many Swedish fans that had met up to support him, when jumping clear again with Markan Cosmopolit, to keep his silver medal position ahead of the last round.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ A focused Henrik von Eckermann delivered another clear round with King Edward, and went into the last round with a margin of 2.13 penalty points down to Jens Fredricson.
