Sweden in Team Bronze overnight

19 August, 2017

A fantastic cross country day at the European Championships at Strzegom saw Ludwig and his fellow Swedes climb the leaderboard to individual 15th and team Bronze overnight.

Ludwig and Paramount Importance delivered when it really mattered on a testing course that had caused a lot of problems all the way around for the riders earlier in the day. Ludwig piloted “Louis” beautifully to finish with only 4.8 time penalties. This, together with good rounds from team mates Sara Algotsson Ostholt, Louise Svensson Jädhe and Niklas Lindbäck put Sweden in bronze medal position overnight, only 5.5 penalties behind Germany and 14.6 penalties behind Great Britain.

The final day off the Championships starts tomorrow at 9.00am with the Final Horse Inspection and first part of the show jumping at 11.00am-12.45pm to conclude with the final at 2.15pm.
