WEG Show Jumping Final - Lennon Moves To Third After First Round

Ireland's Dermott Lennon, riding the Irish-bred mare, Liscalgot, moved from 6th to 3rd position overall in the show jumping individual ranking after the first round of today's (Saturday) competition at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain, racking up just four faults on a very strong course.

The second round, which will determine the Top Four riders for tomorrow's final, takes place at 7 pm Irish time today.

Ireland had three riders in the World's Top 25 today - Lennon, Peter Charles and Kevin Babington - all of whom incurred only four faults each in the first round. But because Lennon came into today's penultimate competition in overall 6th, his chance of making the cut for the Top Four seems best at the moment.

Ireland's fourth team rider, Cian O'Connor, is out of the individual competition after a freak fall in the Nations Cup competition on Thursday, which forced his retirement.

There were only two clear rounds in today's first round - Eric Navet of France and Gianni Govoni of Italy - and just nine four-faulters, three of which were Irish.
