Gold medal for Michèle and Fuchs in Rio!
The outgoing Olympic Champion who had to accept the silver medal in the individual test just won the gold medal in the freestyle. She got 76,300% with Rainman. Sophie Wells came second with 76,150% and Frank Hosmar ended third with 74,800%.
Michèle:"This is fantastic. I am so happy with this gold medal, the colour I came for. We rode the test fighting all along. No technical faults and more expression then during the individual test. Off course that means taking risks but we made no faults and I was very happy with the test. When I heared the points I was dissapointed because I expected more, but if you look at the other scores, they are also not so high. I realy had a difficult moment after the individual test. I looked at the video several times and I just can't understand. I knew I had to go for the full 100% if I wanted to go home with the gold medal."
