An extraordinary performance from Team Belgium saw them rocket up from eighth place after yesterday’s Speed competition to pole position going into tomorrow’s team medal-decider at the Longines FEI Jumping European Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands today.

Clear rounds from Pieter Devos (Claire Z), Jos Verlooy (Igor) and anchorman Gregory Wathelet (MJT Nevados S) meant they didn’t have to count the eight faults collected by Jerome Guery (Quel Homme de Hus), so they stayed on their first-day total of 11.07 penalty points.

The leaders from Germany however slipped to silver medal position with a total of 12.22 while Great Britain improved from overnight fourth place into bronze medal spot with 13.41 points on the board.

And Britain’s Ben Maher (Explosion W) has taken over at the top of the individual rankings ahead of Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat (Albfuehren’s Bianca) in second, while Frenchman Alexis Deroubaix (Timon d’Aure) has moved into third.
