Show jumper André Thieme from Plau am See celebrated two championship victories in the United States in 24 hours. The Mecklenburg native's success with his horse, Golden Chakarya, in the main competition in Ocala was particularly impressive.

This was the 48-year-old's first success with the mare, which had to take a long break due to injury. Thiem remained flawless in Sunday's jump (local time) at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala and prevailed in a time of 41.93 seconds ahead of Olympic champion and former world champion Rodrigo Pessoa with Dalida. The Brazilian also had no landing, but needed 42.32 seconds to complete the course. Canadian Tiffany Foster came in third on the Electric Saddle (0 errors/42.65 seconds).

Shakria has gone through a long period of suffering

Thiem won the gold medal in the individual competition with Chakaria at the 2021 European Championships in Riesenbeek. But due to an injury to his 13-year-old horse, he was unable to defend his European Championship title in Milan last year. The Mecklenburg native has been competing in tournaments in the USA for a few weeks and used his first horse for the first time in an easy test nearly three weeks ago.

Coach Otto Becker also plans to include the 48-year-old in the national team, which is scheduled to compete in the League of Nations tournament in Ocala on March 23.

Thieme with first and third places in the National Grand Prix

Tim actually had reason to celebrate on Saturday. At Hits Post Time Farm he won the Grand National at Ocala. With Paule S he remained faultless in both the first run and the jump and also achieved the fastest time. Canadian François Lamontaigne came in second place on the Chanel du Calvier saddle. There was no third player on the platform. Bronze also went to: Andre Thiem. With Chacco Hearts he took third place.
