STORY HEADLINE: NORTH AMERICAN RIDERS WIN GOLD AT BUENOS AIRES 2018         

DATE: 9 October, 2018

LOCATION: Buenos Aires, Argentina

LANGUAGE: English, Spanish

STORY SCRIPT:

The North American equestrian team won gold on Tuesday at Buenos Aires 2018.

For the show jumping at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) at the Club Hipico Argentino there were no National Olympic Committee (NOC) teams competing. Instead as this is now the tradition for the YOG, the riders represented their home continents.

The event featured six continental teams of five riders and, after the first round on Monday, Tuesday’s second round and a jump-off between Europe and North America decided the medals.

North America emerged victorious following a perfect round by the final rider, Mattie Hatcher (USA), on Santa Rosa Valery. Africa won the bronze medal.

It is important to note that the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) format for Equestrian Jumping is run on borrowed horses, so each rider has to develop a partnership with an unknown horse to compete successfully.
