Šamorín, Slovakia – October 23, 2021 – It’s showtime for showjumping at the X-Bionic Sphere and the last chase for the coveted individual championship is on today. The battle has never been this close before after Peder Fredricson could have taken the overall season title last week if he had finished 6th place or above but a surprise fault mid-course in the jump-off left him in a dramatic 8th meaning the race to the finish line is tighter than ever. Peder Fredricson (SWE) now leads the Championship heading into today’s grand prix on 249 points with Olivier Robert (FRA) just behind in 232. Ben Maher (GBR) sits in third on 228 and Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) rounds off the battle with 223 points.
The Global Champions League team competitions there has just finished there. More than just defining the team champion of the season, the individual results have title implications, not only defining the top 35 combinations for the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Samorin CSI 5* but also the order-of-go that can be a huge advantage in the championship battle.
