The last day of these FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2018 Tryon was full of excitement and tension with three vaulting finals and medals ceremonies: Germany and France won the gold medals after a very tight competition in all categories.
The brilliant Pas De Deux Silvia Stopazzini and Lorenzo Lupacchini from Italy moved everybody yesterday night at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon: Apparently, they didn’t expect to reach the gold medal but they actually made history for their country, being the first Italians to reach it at FEI World Equestrian Games™ with a final score of 9.027, and after a very high level battle with the other competitors. Their samba/salsa energizing routine was perfectly executed on their beautiful horse Rosentolz 99 lunged by Laura Carnabuci.
On Tuesday morning we started a full day of compulsories here in the Tryon International Equestrian Center. The arena filled up during the morning as the nations set up their corners to cheer for their vaulters. Here is an overview of the first day of the FEI World Equestrian Games for vaulting.
Hurricane Florence ran a lot of ink these days and we wanted to give you a detailed update of what happened and what to expect.
First as a hurricane, then as a tropical storm and eventually as a tropical depression, heavy rain and winds arrived this weekend in the area of the Tryon International Equestrian Center, where the FEI World Equestrian Games are happening now.
