“In the coming weeks, millions of people will have the chance to see equestrian sport at its very best at the Olympic and Paralympic Games."
In the final countdown to the London 2012 Games, the FEI has launched a new online hub fei.org/fei/events/olympic-para-games dedicated to all things Olympic and Paralympic, both old and new.
“Each Olympics and Paralympics bring new achievements and the ever changing horizon of sporting enterprise, and we greet each new experience with anticipation and expectation,” FEI President HRH Princess Haya said. “But the Games are not only about the here and now and what is to come. They are also about what has been achieved; what limitations have been exceeded, and what barriers broken; what records have been set and what heights of endeavour scaled.
“In the coming weeks, millions of people will have the chance to see equestrian sport at its very best at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. To all our athletes and support personnel taking part in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, I wish the very best of luck. We are all aware of the years of hard work that were necessary to take you to the top of our sport and we are immensely proud of you.”
The hub history.fei.org will soon be expanded to include the history of equestrian events at the Paralympic Games since equestrian joined the list of Paralympic sports in 1996.
