Not to be undone by his compatriot, Bence Demeter also scored a perfect 1200 points in the ride to move up to second overall.
James Cooke of Great Britain, the day’s fastest swimmer, did not get a single penalty either with his horse and is now fourth overall whist his compatriot Samuel Weale will start just behind him in the combined.
France’s Jean Maxcence Berrou is in bronze medal position as we approach the ultimate event of the day following his two seventh places finishes in both the fence and ride and an eighth position in the swim.
The leading man coming into the ride was Korea’s Jinhwa Jung but several mistakes on the jumps cost him and he now finds himself in sixth position.
Russian surprise package Roman Diachkov will start the combined in position eight with the Ukrainian duo of Yuriy Fedechko and Dmytro Kirpulyanskyy make up the top ten.
Top fencer, Michal Sedlecky of the Czech Republic, is all the back in position sixteen.
