David Will triumphs in Mexico


The German show jumper David Will won the Grand Prix at the international five-star show jumping tournament in Mexico.

In the saddle of My Prins van Dorperheide, the 35-year-old remained flawless in the jump-off and completed the course in 43.16 seconds. For the 2021 team vice European champion, that meant victory and a bonus of almost 109,000 euros.

Second place went to team Olympic champion Malin Baryard-Johnsson from Sweden in Indiana in 43.57 seconds. Third place went to three-time Olympian Laura Kraut. In the saddle of Baloutinue, the American needed 44.26 seconds for the jump-off.

Nine of the 37 rider-horse pairs had qualified for the jump-off for victory with clear rounds in the round. Seven German riders were at the start, but only Will made it into the jump-off. The U21 European Champion of 2019, Philipp Schulze Topphoff, and Clemens de la Lande afforded a knockdown in circulation. Hans-Dieter Dreher, Daniel Deußer, Katrin Eckermann and Christian Kukuk each had two downs with their horses. 24 hours earlier, Kukuk had won Saturday’s main event with Mumbai.

Mexico was the third of 15 stages of the Global Champions Tour show jumping series, plus the playoffs in November in Prague. In July, the only German stage of the tour in Riesenbeck is on the calendar, Riesenbeck is stage number ten.
