British crowd cheers Narumi Kurosu of Japan, the final competitor of the London Olympics

British crowd cheers Narumi Kurosu of Japan, the final competitor of the London Olympics | Compétitions équestres du moment | Scoop.it

“My victory was being here,” Kurosu said, adding, “I hope to have inspired people with my never-give-up attitude.”

 

Karen Crouse of the New York Times writes: With the London Olympics entering the home stretch, the fans put their collective voice behind Narumi Kurosu of Japan, the last finisher in the last discipline of the last event. “I figured out they were cheering for me,” she said through an interpreter. “I was very grateful. It was a special moment.” > Read complete story

 

Of the five disciplines in modern pentathlon, Kurosu’s favorite is riding, and that was her main misery on Sunday when the horse she drew, Zafira, threw her on course then twice refused to jump, causing her to topple in the standings.

 

(The Russian Evdokia Gretchichnikova, who is ranked 16th in the world, drew the same horse and dropped to 35th place over all.)

 

Kurosu's hometown is Shimotsuma City, the area that sustained extensive damage in last year’s 7.4-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami. “My victory was being here,” Kurosu said, adding, “I hope to have inspired people with my never-give-up attitude.”

Equestrian Eventing: The Olympics’ most dangerous sport? | TIME.com

Equestrian Eventing: The Olympics’ most dangerous sport? | TIME.com | Compétitions équestres du moment | Scoop.it

On the eve of the thrilling cross-country phase of the Olympic eventing competition at the London Olympics, TIME magazine's Sonia Van Gilder Cooke writes about the risks to horse and rider and some of the remedies in her article, "Equestrian Eventing: The Olympics’ Most Dangerous Sport?."

 

Eventing is a three-phase competition combining the disciplines of dressage, show jumping and cross country, but it's the popular cross-country phase that brings out the crowds to watch horses and riders gallop at speed over a variety of impressive obstacles and water hazards.

 

Olympic Eventing Schedule: Eventing cross-country will take place Monday, July 30, and will be followed Tuesday with show jumping, the final phase, and the awarding of the team and individual medals.  The dressage phase started yesterday and continues today.
