It was a blue and yellow success in the Super Final of the Global Champions Tour in Prague.
Henrik von Eckermann defeated King Edward.
I knew I could win this. This year I will never forget, he said on Eurosport radio.
The team’s Olympic gold medalist won the second final after a flawless ride and clocked the fastest time of 1.66 seconds over runner-up Sergio Alvarez Moya of Spain at the Alamo. The duo were the only ones to look flawless when everything had to be decided in the second final round.
Von Eckermann paid tribute to King Edward.
– This is a completely different level, it’s his own. He was very comfortable in the first round, and here in the second he wore a higher gear, he told Eurosport.
Bin Maher from the United Kingdom ranked third.
Von Eckerman was hot during the entire final jump and drove after the first round, bringing him out as the last crew in the decision.
World designer Peder Frederickson, who was named the world’s best rider by the FEI that day, had a tough night for Christian Key and finished 12th with 15 fouls.
Malin Baryard Johnson did not finish the first round and finished in 15th and last place.
