2018-05-04

Vilken toppnotering för de svenska hoppryttarna på FEI:s världsrankning. Peder Fredricson är fortfarande trea. Henrik von Eckermann är efter framgångarna i världscupfinalen femma på topplistan.

Ny världsetta blev det också under april. Harrie Smolders, Nederländerna, petade ner amerikanen Kent Farrington.

April månad var en bra månad för de svenska hoppryttarna. Fem ryttare finns med på topp 100-listan totalt. Utöver Peder och Henrik, som har satt ett nytt rekord för svensk hoppning, är det Evelina Tovek klättrar till plats 86, Malin Baryard Johnsson på plats 92 och Douglas Lindelöw på plats 95.

Tidigare har Sverige haft Rolf-Göran Bengtsson rankad världsetta.

The Flying Dutchman: Olympian Harrie Smolders debuts as the Longines world number one

Dutch Olympian Harrie Smolders has secured the number one spot of the Longines World Ranking for the first time in his career, taking the reins from Olympic silver medallist Kent Farrington (USA) who held the position since May 2017.

Smolders, who turns 38 next week, made his Olympic debut at the 2016 Rio Games, has been snapping at the heels of Farrington (34) for several months from second position. Now at the top of this elite list on 3158 points, he earns further recognition after his incredible year in 2017 which was marked by one dominant performance after another. Smolders took individual silver with Don VHP Z at the 2017 Longines FEI European Championships in Gothenburg, and shortly after clinched victory for his country at the 2017 Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Final in Barcelona (ESP).

 He was awarded the Rider of the Year in the Netherlands in 2017, another first in his career, as an acknowledgement of his accomplishments in a single season and also made history with his double victory winning both the 2017 Longines Global Champions Tour and the 2017 Longines Global Champions league.

 Kent Farrington (USA) who is well on the road to recovery after breaking his right leg in a fall in mid-February now sits in second position on 2913 points, followed closely by Peder Fredricson (SWE) who remains at number three on 2821 points.

 After her electrifying win at the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping final in Paris in April, Beezie Madden (USA) has moved up from number 21 to 11, with Germany’s Daniel Deusser leaping back into the top ten from 17th position.
