Jung’s Unbeatable In Britain Too

Badminton, England—May 5

He might be called The Terminator, and he clearly is a serious competitor with ice in his veins, nerves of steel and all the other top sports metaphors, but Michael Jung’s no humorless robot.

He’s also not visibly worrying himself too badly over the prospect of winning a Rolex Grand Slam this weekend, as he cracked a mischievous grin when asked about his preparation with La Biosthetique Sam FBW.

Time’s Only On Jung’s Side For Rolex Cross-Country

Lexington, Ky.—April 30

When he canters into the Rolex Stadium on fischerRocana FST for tomorrow’s show jumping, Michael Jung will have three rails in hand over Phillip Dutton on Fernhill Fugitive.

Lexington, Ky.—April 29

 The other riders tried to get close to him—him being Germany’s Michael Jung, who won yesterday’s Rolex Kentucky CCI**** dressage with 34.4 penalties—all day. 

Marilyn Little and RF Demeter, who went before the lunch break on Day 2, earned 42.5 penalties and closed the gap slightly. But it took the last rider of the day, Allison Springer on Arthur, to get even remotely close with a 39.7.
