Horse euthanised

TOKYO: The Swiss Olympics team said a horse named Jet Set had to be euthanised after a leg injury in the team eventing competition.

The horse ridden by Robin Godel tore a ligament in its right foreleg landing a jump toward the end of the cross-country course.

The seriousness of the injury meant Jet Set was euthanised soon after.

The Swiss team said the accident was not the fault of Godel or the design of the Seaforest Cross Country Course.

The team will continue in today’s final jumping section of the eventing competition with the replacement Eveline Bodenmuller riding Violine de la Brasserie. — AP
