A spectacular show for the Offenburg crowd
Offenburg hosted its first ever FEI World Cup™ vaulting qualifier to great acclaim.
With few elusive places at the final available, the pressure was on. Vaulters, horses and lungers alike, rose to the occasion delivering a spectacular show for the Offenburg crowd.
In the female category, Boe led from beginning to end hitting exceptional form. Together with Daviana and Ines Nawroth, she once again showed that the force is with her, performing a near flawless rendition of her Star Wars freestyle to secure her place at the Dortmund final (8.516).
Her eyes will be firmly on securing her first ever FEI World Cup Vaulting™ title, one that has thus far evaded her.
The current FEI World Cup™ vaulting standing’s leader, Switzerland’s Nadja Buttiker came into the event with maximum qualifying points already in the bag after wins at both Paris and Leipzig.
She performed her ‘Music & Dance’ freestyle with ease and grace to finish 2nd (8.336), after clawing back from 4th from the first day. It will be tantalising to watch Buttiker and Boe go head to head in the final - a new rivalry has emerged.
