    Default Eventing drawn order

    This is from a post on H & H.

    According to Uptown Eventing:

    Ecuador
    USA
    Australia
    France
    South Africa,
    Poland
    Germany
    Ireland
    Canada
    Belgium,
    Netherlands
    Belarus
    Japan
    Brazil
    Italy,
    Austria
    Great Britain
    Sweden
    Jamaica
    New Zealand,
    Russia
    Thailand.

    I'm not real sure how this works, though.

    Does this mean Nina Ligon will be last on Friday, or do they do one full run through and then start over again?

    Looks like Ronald Zabela will be the first to go, though.

    Thumbs up take our best shot

    It looks like the US riders qill have to lay down their best rides , clean and fast and then wait while the other teams try to catch us; unfortunately , we will not have the advantage of seeing how the combinations/ fences with options ride but, then, we have the best riders right?

    .
    I think it is this. I know one of our riders is on for dressage on Saturday which would cement that theory.

    According to H & H, the rider the South Africans chose was removed by the CAS and must be replaced by Alexander Peternell.

    Once the CAS said Alexander Peternell would represent South Africa, South Africa decided not to send anybody at all. A second appeal to CAS has resulted in the CAS insisting Alexander must go to Greenwich.

    Tubby Reddy of the South African Olympic association (SASCOC) said: “It is indeed a very sad day for us as a country to be instructed to select an athlete into Team South Africa against our will, but being a disciplined member of the Olympic Movement we have no option but to adhere fully to this decision.
    There is definitely some behind-the-scenes BS going on here.

    That's how its always been done in the past, one from each team goes then they start over again.

    Thanks for posting the start order.

    According to the FEI site, the individuals will be interspersed among the team riders. So all the individuals might not be going in the first round of team riders.

    According to H & H, two of theirs will go on Saturday and three on Sunday.

    Where is the Chronicle in all of this?
