Lexington, KY
– The first weekend of competition at CHIO Aachen in Aachen, Germany wrapped up Sunday with a day of CVIO3* vaulting competition. Representing the U.S. were sisters Kimberly and Cassidy Palmer (Half Moon Bay, CA) performing their second freestyle test in the Prize of Sparkasse Pas de Duex competition.

On Saturday the pair, vaulting on Wolfgang Renz’s Leon 364 and lunged by Wolfgang Renz, finished their first freestyle test with a score of 6.658. That score was good for a fifth place finish. On Sunday the Palmer’s improved upon that score, earning a 7.302, and finished one place better in fourth place.

Those two efforts earned them a fourth place overall finish.* Winning the Pas de Deux were Austria’s Stefan Csandl and Theresa Thiel.

Complete results are available at www.chioaachen.de.

*Pas de Deux total scores are an average of two freestyles scores.

Individual Competition

While the Pas de Deux teams were just getting started Saturday, individual vaulters were wrapping up their efforts.

Leading those individual efforts for the U.S. was Redwood City, California’s Alicen Divita. The 24-year-old earned a sixth place overall finish in the Prize of Sparkasse Individual Female Competition. Thanks to top ten placings in all three phases of competition* Divita, vaulting on Julie Divita’s Pino del Rio and lunged by Elke Lensing, improved upon her tenth place finish at the Aachen CVIO3* in 2012. Divita was tenth in the compulsory competition, an impressive fourth in the technical competition, and eighth in Saturday’s freestyle competition.

The U.S.’s top freestyle effort came from Elizabeth Ioannou (Saratoga, CA). On Emma Seely’s Jarl, lunged by Lasse Kristensen, Ioannou earned a 7.961 and took seventh place. She finished in twelfth place overall. Mary Garrett, the third and final U.S. individual female competitor, finished in fourteenth place overall. Garrett (Seal Beach, CA) vaulted on Wolfgang Renz’s Leon 364 and was lunged by Wolfgang Renz.

Kristian Roberts (Moss Beach, CA), the sole U.S. individual male vaulter in Aachen, also vaulted on Leon 364 and was lunged by Wolfgang Renz. Roberts finished fourteenth with a three round average score of 5.586.

Great Britain’s Joanne Eccles won the individual female competition and Erik Oese of Germany was the top placed individual male.
