14-09-2016 : Silver for Michèle in Rio!

Today the individual test was ridden for the individual medals.

The spotlights were on Michèle and Rainman as outgoing Olympic Champions. They won the teamtest yesterday who only counts for team classification.

Michèle and Fuchs did a beautiful test without faults but they ended on the second spot on 0,5% behind Sophie Wells.

Michèle:"I am very happy about my test. Everything went well and once the test was over I had the feeling this could be the winning test. I was surprised when the points came in and it seemed not to be enough for the victory. Dressage is a discipline were you get judged and this you know at the start. If you don't accept that you need to be doing another sport. I am happy with the silver medal but today the gold medal was absolutely a possibility."
