Silver Medal For The British Junior Team At The European Championships

The Accenture British team of Gemma Plumley, Louise Pavitt, Ellen Whitaker and James Billington were the winners of the Team Silver Medal at the Junior European Championships held in San Remo, Italy on 11th July. Great Britain finished on a total score of 16 faults behind Switzerland who finished on 13 faults. Germany and France both finished on 28 faults therefore a jump off was required to decide the Bronze Medal winners, however Germany were faster against the clock to claim the medal.

Mike Florence was delighted with the team's overall performance, especially James Billington on Michael Whitaker's Ashley who jumped two superb clear rounds in the team competition.
