Team GB will be reinstated to the top tier of showjumping’s super league following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration in Sport (CAS).

At 4.30pm today it was announced: “The CAS has allowed the appeal filed by the BEF [British Equestrian Federation] on 5 February 2010 and has annulled the decision of the FEI [International Equestrian Federation] Tribunal of 21 January 2010.

“The 15 September 2009 resolution by the FEI Bureau deciding for a relegation of the teams of Great Britain, Belgium and Italy from the FEI Nations Cup is set aside to the extent that it relegates the team of Great Britain from the 2010 edition of the FEI Nations Cup.”
