Olivier and H&M Legend of Love managed to move from the 13th place to the 4th after Final II in Paris. The pair produced a clear first round and rode a spectacular jump-off as well.
Good luck wasn't on their side on the first day, but it was on Friday the 13th! On Thursday, they had one down on the first fence in Final I. That's a bummer, of course. Anyway, they kept focusing and started on Saturday again as a motivated team. This time, their hard work paid off. Olivier and H&M Legend of Love rode two amazing clear rounds. Result? A 4th place !
"I am very satisfied with what we did today. I wanted to compensate for yesterday's mistake, and it worked. From the 13th to the 4th place, that's quite a big step. This is a good point to start with tomorrow. My ambition is just to keep this level and keep working like we did.", Says Olivier.
The World Cup final is a three-leg competition. The third competition will be held on Sunday and has two rounds, with the top 30 athletes returning for the first round. The 20 best-placed athletes following round one will move on to the second round and the athlete with the lowest number of penalties after all three competitions will determine the overall winner.
