Olympia 2021: Fall in 10th place: Olympic champion Michael Jung protests

The German eventing team lodged a protest after the cross-country ride on the 4420 meter long route in the Sea Forest Park in the bay in front of Tokyo.

Krajewski, who was eliminated in 2016 in Rio with Samourai du Thot in the terrain: “I am impressed by my mare, how she fights for me , want to do everything right. I am relieved and very proud. “
