RELEASE: July 19, 2007
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Malina Gueorgueiv
The FEI is proud to announce that as of July 2007, Rolex will become the title sponsor of the FEI World Jumping Rankings, which will henceforth be known as the Rolex Rankings. This is the fourth FEI activity to which Rolex has lent its generous support after the television magazine FEI Equestrian World
, the 2007 FEI World Cup™ Jumping and Dressage Finals in Las Vegas and the FEI World Cup™ Jumping, Western European League and the Final, beginning in October 2007. The FEI would like to sincerely thank Rolex for their trust and consistent long-term partnership.
FEI Secretary General Michael Stone commented, “The FEI is delighted that Rolex have agreed to further extend their relationship with us by agreeing to sponsor the FEI World Jumping Rankings. The Rolex Rankings combined with the FEI Rolex World Cup™ Jumping makes great sense and mirrors the involvement of Rolex in other sports such as golf. We look forward to the start of the FEI Rolex World Cup™ Jumping and the first edition of the Rolex Rankings, which will become the talking point in the discipline in the years to come.”
The Rolex Rankings, published at the beginning of each month, grade the performances of the international jumping riders on the basis of a system of points obtained over a 12-month period. Currently, 1,715 riders are part of the rankings. To view the latest rankings and to learn how they are calculated, please visit www.horsesport.org/s/results/rankings.htm
