The top eight teams after the first team round jump again for the team medals from 9:00 – 10:45 a.m. EST today, bringing their Round 1 scores forward to Round 2. The cumulative scores of each team’s top three riders over the two rounds determines the medals—any medal ties are decided by a jump-off. 

So, Germany, Brazil, the Netherlands and the USA—all tied for the lead on 0 faults—will jump again along with France, Canada, Switzerland and Sweden.

There are also 18 individual riders who jump in this round in their quest for the individual final. Each rider’s score is cumulative in counting toward qualifying for the individual final, but only the top 35 riders after this round move on to the individual final on Aug. 19. Then, they’ll start on a clean slate again.
