Christopher Forsberg and Sapporo Hippo, First among the Swedish riders, he took a total of 8 kicks in the jump. The duo made an impression in all three combinations and also tore an obstacle in combining the two.
– A little annoying in two strokes but he felt better after the terrain yesterday and we continue to work forward and strengthen it. Now I can help the team the rest of the day, says Christopher Forsberg to SVT Sport.
He then supported Malin Petersen and Charlie Brown with a flawless journey. An important result for the Swedish national team is that Sweden without money climbed to fifth after the Irishman Sam Watson knocked down three obstacles. Petersen is very pleased with Charlie Brown’s European Championships.
– I feel that he is a very nice horse and with a little routine he would be great. It is as if and with the ability to be good at all branches, no branch is too weak.
The starting order in the jump is reversed, ie with the 25 best teams ranked in the first group
Flawless double of Sweden
Malin Josephson and Golden Midnight He started the second set with the mainly seeded riders. The duo opened brilliantly, flawlessly and with mild resilience to overcome obstacles. Thus, Sweden can include two zeros in the score so far.
Sofia Sjöborg makes her first championship and finishes 17th worse after finishing in a flawless jump with 10-year-old Marie Brigamulga van Het Marienshof Z.
Sophia did a great job with this horse. A very resilient horse that has developed enormously in recent times and there is more potential, which will be very exciting to see, says Lars Kristenson, expert commentator at SVT Sports.
Sarah Algutson Ostholt and Chiquilo He jumped well but tore off an obstacle. But the Swedish team’s efforts are solid and when Switzerland’s last rider Robin Goodl passed two obstacles, it meant that Sweden climbed to fourth and overshadowed France, which is now under enormous pressure with only one rider left.
Sweden’s chance to win the bronze medal – the last competitor in France decides the bronze battle
There are only three riders left in France in the competition, which means that all results count. Jean Le Peugeot tore down three obstacles and the former French teammate Stanislas de Zochovich tore down four, which means that France can now only afford two errors at a time with their last rider if they want to keep the bronze position.
Maxime Livio got a chance for a bronze player and his tour also decided the French team’s points. The pressure was great and an early demolition occurred, an effect that cost him the individual podium and also the bronze for the French national team.
Livio’s demolition means that Sweden takes the bronze in the team competition, the same result as they had at Lohmöllen two years ago.
