Great Britain Blitz Swim
Sep 6th Sep, 10
Great Britain has won the swimming event in a scorching time beating Japan and China. This moves Great Britain into 2nd position overall behind the winners of the fencing Lithuania who had a dissapointing swim and finished back in 7th position. Nick Woodbridge (GBR) stated that the Great Britain team would not be resting on their laurels "We are all pretty confident strong riders, but we are still weary going into the ride as it can depend upon the horse that you get. We're happy with the swim, but it will come down to the combined event. We struggle a bit with our shooting and you can lose a lot of seconds on just one shot." The powerful Russian team sit in 3rd position finishing back in 6th position in the swim. The biggest shock so faqr in the poor position of the Czech Republic which includes David Svoboda and Ondej Polivka. They are stuggling back in 8th position and have alot of work to do if they want to finish on the podium. Full results after 2 events below:
