France and Austria had not secured any of the team starting places at the Olympic 2020 Games in Tokyo Olympic in the qualifying tournaments. But shortly before the end of 2019, the FEI received the good news: Both countries are now with a team at the sporting high point of Olympic 2020 in Japan.

For about dressage riders in Austria and France, the New Year’s Eve festivity turned out to be rather more substantial and cheerful this year than initially prearranged. The bulletin for France and Austria came unpredictably shortly before the end of the year that aside from these two countries would get an initial place at the Olympic 2020 Games in Tokyo Olympic in the Summer Games.
Two out of three riders had before met these supplies. But it stayed that way that means: neither South Africa nor Brazil will provide a team for the Olympic 2020 Games in Tokyo Olympic. Qualifications for the Olympic 2020 Games are a complex system. The team’s performance is crucial for this.
It does not matter which tab they are. The riders do not have to be part of the team that has achieved the start authorization for the team with their enactment. But there must be three riders because an Olympic 2020 team in dressage consists of three riders.
The countries of South Africa and Brazil already had their squad start permits in the dressage discipline in their pouches. Nonetheless only two out of three qualifications achieved to encounter the obligatory obligation on time by December 31, 2019. For that, a rider has to finish at tiniest two international Grand Prix de Dressage with a result of over 66 percent.
The precondition for this is that at least one five-star judge of another nationality must rate the rider with more than 66 percent. The last gamble for the third rider from South Africa and Brazil was owing to the deadline for the Grand Prix in Mechelen.
South African rider Laurienne Dittmann stayed at the Grand Prix in Mechelen with 62.826 percent below the required 66 percent. There was no rider for Brazil in this test. So, it smears to both countries that the squad starting position is allocated contrarily.
There is also a complicated system for this award, but this will not be explained in additional here. One thing is certain: France and Austria advantage from the bad luck that South Africa and Brazil had. The two European nations can start with a team at the Olympic 2020 Games in Tokyo Olympic in the Summer Games.
