There seems to be a realisation amongst vaulters that medals are there for the taking with a host of contenders over each category gunning for gold.
Competition is rife and with no margin for error it will come down to who can create those unforgettable ‘goose bump’ moments that WEG is renowned for.
Kristina Boe (GER) will be looking to make it a clean sweep adding World Champion to her impressive list of accolades which include current FEI World Cup winner & European Champion.
Famed for her captivating ability to tell a story through her vaulting, she will face competition from a tough field, and will have her sights firmly on the gold medal after narrowly missing out at 2016 FEI World Championships.
There is an endless list of those with the capacity to take top honours; Katharina Luschin (AUT) undefeated in 2018, Nadja Büttiker (SUI) second in the FEI World Cup 2018, Sarah Kay (GER) multiple world & European medallist, Lisa Wild (AUT) 2015 World Cup winner, Janika Derks (GER) celebrated for her dominance in the compulsory round & Anna Cavallaro (ITA) 2014 WEG silver medallist.
In the male category all eyes will be firmly on Lambert Leclezio, the 2016 world champion who won under the Mauritian flag, will this year make his championship debut for France.
With form, finesse & breath-taking skill if he is able to execute all four rounds as planned he will be tough to beat. He joins a formidable French contingent which includes current World silver medallist Vincent Haennel and European bronze medallist Clement Taillez.
Germany are fielding a strong line-up of male individuals all with their sights firmly set on gold, including; 2018 FEI World Cup winner Jannis Drewell, 2018 CHIO Aachen winner Jannik Heiland and former European silver medallist Thomas Brüsewitz.
Keep an eye on two times World Junior Champion Colombia’s Juan Martin Clavijo.
