U.S. Names Team for Samsung Super League Final
Lexington, KY - Lexington, KY - The USEF announced the show jumping team for the Samsung Super League Final at CSIO Barcelona in Spain, September 13-16, 2007. The Samsung Super League Final is a chance for the eight teams involved in the Super League to make up valuable ground as the Final offers double points for its placings.
As it stands now, the Germans look like they will be tough to catch. After the seventh round at CSIO Dublin, they sit comfortably atop the leader board:
1. Germany - 47.75
2. Switzerland - 32.75
3. Great Britain - 30.5
4. Belgium - 27.75
5. USA - 26.5
6. The Netherlands - 25.5
7. France - 20.25
8. Sweden - 16.5
The team which finishes last at the end of the Barcelona show is dropped from the League for the following year and is replaced by the team which places first in the FEI Nation’s Cup Series.
