200 Days to go to London 2012 Paralympic Games

RELEASE: February 10, 2012
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: FEI Communications

The London 2012 Paralympic Games look set to take Paralympic Equestrian into the history books for many reasons, as we get one step closer on the eve of the 200-day countdown (11 February).

Sales of Paralympic Equestrian tickets for London 2012 have already broken records.

More than 40,000 tickets were sold before Christmas last year, dramatically overtaking the previous record of 33,000 for the 2008 Paralympic Equestrian events held in Hong Kong.

Mexico will also be making its Paralympic Equestrian début on 30 August - 4 September in Greenwich Park represented by a team of four riders, and Ireland will be competing for the very first time as a Paralympic Equestrian Team.

“This will be a landmark Paralympic Games and we are looking forward to securing several more “firsts” for Paralympic Equestrian in Greenwich Park,” said Trond Asmyr, FEI Director of Dressage and Para-Equestrian Dressage.

“Brazil’s Marcos Alves and Singapore’s Laurentia Tan both picked up bronze medals in 2008, and these were not just the first Para-Equestrian medals for Brazil and Singapore but for South America and Asia.

“Lauren Barwick also secured Canada’s first Paralympic Equestrian gold medal in 2008, as did Philippa Johnson for South Africa.

“The London 2012 Paralympics now feel closer than ever, with 23 nations qualified and just 3 individual qualification slots remaining.

“All eyes are now on the 9 April, when the names of these 3 athletes will be announced.”

The FEI is marking 200 days to go to the London 2012 Paralympic Games on FEI Facebook.
