Rio de Janeiro, Brazil—Sept. 13
The first gold of the Rio Para Equestrian dressage competition was won by Norway’s Ann Cathrin Lübbe at the Olympic Equestrian Center.
In a thrilling and closely contended Grade III individual test Lübbe, riding Donatello, scored 72.87 percent, just a fraction of a percentage point ahead of Denmark’s Susanne Sunesen on Que Faire.
And keeping it a neighbourly affair, Sweden’s Louise Etzner Jakobsson took the bronze at this, her first Paralympic Games, riding Zernard.
