Germany Wins Dressage Gold in Tryon as Spain Secures Ticket to 2020 Olympics

TRYON, N.C. – The German team won on Thursday the dressage competition at the 2018 World Equestrian Games held in the International Equestrian Center in Tryon, North Carolina, while Spain secured a place in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

On the second day of competition, the German team won with a total score of 242,950 points, followed by the US (233,136 points) and the United Kingdom (229,628 points), which has in its team Charlotte Dujardin, Olympic medalist in 2012 and 2016.

Spain finished sixth, and thanks to its score (220,186), secured a ticket to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Meanwhile, the audience on the stand enjoyed the race amid hot weather at the main stadium of the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), with a capacity for 20,000 spectators, located in a mountainous environment.

The venue was filled with colors and flags of various countries, especially the host nation, the United States, and one of the great rulers of equestrian sports, Germany.

The sun shone all day and the race continued normally as planned although about 300 kilometers away on the southern coast of North Carolina, the incoming hurricane Florence could cause some damage.

To end Thursday’s program, the cowboy dressage category – also known as “reining” – proceeded with its second qualifying round before moving to the finals of the program.

Austrian rider Martin Muehlstaetter leads the table so far, followed by Italian Pierluigi Chiodo and Frenchman Axel Pesek.
