Yoshiaki Oiwa and Bart L JRA has completed the eventing with top honours, scoring 22.70 total penalties. Before the start of the last day, he was sitting in second place behind leader Foouad Mirza. The two only had less than a pole between them, so the race for the top spot was tight. So when the pole dropped for Foouad Mirza, it meant Yoshiaki Oiwa jumped to the lead having produced a clear round. Rounding of the top 3 was Alex Hua Tian of China, who also produced a clear round aboard PSH Convivial.
On to the teams, as we mentioned Japan is on a hot start! Claiming 3 gold’s already in this Asian Games in Equestrian. Team Dressage and Eventing, as well as Individual Eventing. The eventing was no different, the combined total penalties for their team was 82.40, miles ahead of second placed India with 121.30. Following closely in third place was Thailand with 126.70.
Tomorrow marks the start of the Jumping competition. One of the most popular and awaited disciplines the crowd wants to watch. A staggering 68 competitors from 19 nations are participating in the much awaited class. The amount of nations has more than doubled from the last Asian Games in Korea, Incheon 2014. Tomorrow our riders of Indonesia will kick things of with Raymen Kaunang being the first rider in to test the course built by Werner Deeg (GER).
Best of luck to all!
