Caze dominated the fence and showed class in the ride which resulted in a 50 second lead going into the Combined Event which she maintained to the end. Caze said after the historic gold: I was very happy with all the support from the American crowd. I was extremely nervous before the start as it was the first World Cup of the year. I need to learn to stay more calm. I was pleased with my laser shooting, however I still need to improve my Run and Swim if I want to stay at the top”
Silver Medallist Mhairi Spence had a solid day finishing high up in all disciplines, she said after the event: “In the Combined Event I had to focus on my running as I could hear the long legs of Schoneborn behind me. Getting Silver means a lot to me as I missed out on the World Championships last year and this is reward for my hard training.”
Lena Schoneborn who had a terrible start to the day said: I wanted to quit after the fencing, I was giving away unnecessary touches. They day got better after that, I had a good swim and then great ride, and I just pushed myself really hard in the Combined Event to win the Bronze which I am very happy with.
World Junior Champion Sarolta Kovacs (HUN) not only grabbed 4th place but did what no other Women has done by beating Elodie Clouvel (FRA) in the swim. This was the platform for her to finish in her highest World Cup place. After the swim she said I am very happy to be better than Elodie for the first time, I had a fantastic finish.
Local Favourite Margaux Isaksen who had a fantastic fence and swim and was on track for a dream medal in front of her fans tasted disaster in the riding event missing a jump to drop her back to 23rd position which made her absolutely devastated".
