Thrills and spills from the first round of the Agria FEI Jumping World Championship, part two

Thursday, 11 August 2022
ECCO FEI World Championships 2022

The Agria FEI Jumping World Championship finally got underway yesterday, and Louis Konickx's opening fourteen-fence course got the competitions off to the best possible start with fabulous sport. Here's Eiken Sato's feisty Chilensky JRA for Japan, who had a small hiccup at fence nr. 3 with a refusal but apart from that blazed around the track without touching a pole.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ Germany's Marcus Ehning and Stargold also had a rail down on 12a, but were lightning fast to still finish in the top 20. Germany sits 6th on the team standings, with 7.76 penalty points.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ The combination at 12ab with a triple bar and upright caused trouble for many, also for Switzerland's Pius Schwizer and Vancouver de Lanlore who were fault free until this jump. The Swiss team sit 5th on the overall standing with a score of 6.83.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ USA's Mclain Ward and Contagious did not have the best start, with the oxer at no. four coming down which dropped them down to sit 29th on the individual standings.

Photo © Jenny Abrahamsson/WoSJ The Dutch sit 8th on the team standings ahead of round two, here Harrie Smolders and Monaco who had four seconds added to their time.
