Rio de Janeiro : Here we go for 15 intense days of Olympia!

Thursday 11 August 2016

This Thursday was a busy day with train the horses, visit the Swiss House and the Studio of Swiss TV, which was a trip of quite a few hours by bus - all in awaiting for the vet check on Friday morning at 07:00 (at noon Swiss Time).

It seems like the Swiss show jumping team has to deal with a lot of other tasks, duties and a few other "obstacles" aside the five real competitions coming up between next Sunday and Friday. This morning the five Olympic horses have completed a good workout and training session. Then just before noon (17:00 Swiss time) the team departed by bus to the broadcasting center of the Swiss Television and the Swiss House at Lake Freitas, at the famous beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, a drive of at least 1.5 hours from Deodoro there. At 13:30 h (18:30 Swiss time), the team was at the press conference, and at 15 o'clock (20:00 Swiss time) they went for lunch at the Maison Suisse, just in time to celebrate the Olympic gold of the Swiss rowers!

And on Friday morning already early at 7:00 starts the veterinary inspection, and then on Sunday the first qualifying competition at 10 am (15 pm Swiss time), signing the start of a long week, with many expectations and efforts.
