Germany’s Michael Jung wins eventing World Cup

  • Germany’s Michael Jung has won the HSBC FEI World Cup eventing title for the second year running.

    Last year’s European bronze medallist achieved the maximum possible points in the accumulator series — the first time the World Cup has been run in this format with no final — by winning two events, Marbach and Strzegom.

    He collects US$50,000 (£32,156) for his victory.

    “This is wonderful. This [prize money] will now allow me to relax and prepare my top horse, Sam, for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky next month.

    “The HSBC FEI World Cup has provided great opportunities for me to prepare three horses to top level. It couldn’t have been better and I’m very pleased and grateful.”

    Lucy Wiegersma finished best of the Brits in fifth, collecting US$13,000 (£8,360).
