Eventing Appeals Dismissed


Equestrian Australia today confirmed the appeal lodged in relation to the nomination of the Eventing team of the 2012 Australian Olympic Team was dismissed.


Riders will now have 48 hours to determine whether they will file an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).


During this time Equestrian Australia and the Australian Olympic Committee are unable to make further comment.


The Australian Olympic Committee will announce the Eventing team’s final selection.




Everyone has their opinion as to who they think constitutes Australia's perfect team for London. It is now time to put our full support behind the combinations selected , and be proud of each and everyone of their efforts. How lucky are we to have so many wonderful athletes to choose from , our glass is half full indeed. After the Olympics is the time to review the benefits of where our riders need to be based in the future & whether the strategy used by either the NZ or USA teams is a reasonable compromise. The horse has bolted now , so nothing can be done at this point. Every rider listed on our elite squads have worked with focus & passion towards their goal of representing Australia , it's time to back of & let them get on with it please!
