Date:               1st - 3rd June 2012


Classes:           CCI 3*-W


Location:        Strzegom, Poland



In 2012 Strzegom in Poland will host the second leg of the FEI World Cup Eventing series and the third leg of the new FEI Nations Cup Eventing series

In 2011, Michael Jung of Germany established his position on the 2011 FEI World Cup™ Eventing rankings after scoring an emphatic one-two at Strzegom. In a remarkable record, Jung, the reigning Series Champion from 2010 and winner of the 2009 FEI World Cup™ Eventing Final in Strzegom won at this leading Polish venue for the third consecutive time.

The German rider was in first and second position throughout the competition, only swapping the order of his horses in the final phase when Leopin, which had been re-routed after retiring the previous weekend in Luhmühlen CCI4*, jumped clear to take the top spot. Leopin was the only horse to achieve the optimum Cross Country time and, with his faultless jumping round, was the only horse in the competition to complete on his Dressage score.

An impressive total of 11 nations featured at Strzegom in 2011, with 24 of the 32 starters completing the competition and 17 jumping clear across country.
