Team jumping final split in two

October 6, 2010

The large number of entries for the jumping championship at the World Equestrian Games has forced organisers to split tomorrow's team final into two sessions.

The Jumping Team Final, the second round of the team competition, also serves as a qualification for the Individual Final.

An afternoon session, running from 1 to 5pm, is open to all team members whose teams have not qualified for the second round of the team competition, and to individual riders not starting in the evening session. All riders in this session start in reverse order of their individual classification.

An evening session begins at 7.20pm and is open to 15 individual riders (taken from individual riders and team members whose teams have not qualified for the second round of the team competition), and to the top ten teams.

In this session, the 15 individuals start before the top ten teams in the reverse order of their individual classification. The top ten teams start in the reverse order of their team classification.
