EVE JOBS STANDS OUT IN FIRST ROUND OF EQUESTRIAN JUMPING EVENT
Steve Jobs’ daughter competes at Lima 2019 alongside the best riders in the Americas, who, in turn, highlight the level of the equestrian venue in La Molina.
As if the direct qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games was not attractive enough for Equestrian sports in Lima 2019, American Eve Jobs, daughter of Apple’s visionary co-founder Steve Jobs, made her debut this morning. The audience at the Army Equitation School applauded her performance, which clocked a time of 71.16s in the speed test.
The 21-year-old rider participates in the individual and team jumping competition. The first round of this competition finished this morning in La Molina. Eve Jobs ranked seventh and helped the United States lead the team competition. She continues her participation tomorrow with two more qualifying rounds.
Her compatriot Elizabeth Madden rode her Breitling horse in 68.82s and leads the individual ranking. It is worth mentioning the equestrian course in La Molina, praised by competitors as the horses performed tests with comfort and were able to set good times when jumping over obstacles.
“We must congratulate the Lima 2019 Pan American Games Organizing Committee because they have done an amazing job. This is a top-level equestrian venue, in fact, one of the best in which I have competed. The course and stables are in optimal conditions and this is important for horses. Quattro (his horse) is happy and that’s great because if they are not well, we cannot compete successfully,” said Bolivian rider Daniel Bedoya.
Also, Brazilian Eduardo Menezes (fifth in the qualification) thanked for the facilities provided by Lima 2019. “It’s the best Equestrian venue I’ve ever competed at. Everything is top-class for riders and especially for the horses so they get relaxed before the competition,” he said.
