Round one of the Second Individual Competition in the jumping commenced last night (AEST), which doubles as a round of the teams competition. At the conclusion of the second day, the Aussies are still holding on to a top ten position (8th) in the teams component of the event despite a tough course that saw only 5 clear rounds amongst more than 120 competitors.

A top ten finish means we've qualified for the team final!

The Aussie team are on a total score of 28.32. Switzerland's jumping team are the current leaders, with a total team score of 11.64.

The pair were third after the first round, but two rails overnight saw them slip down the leaderboard. That being said, they are still very strongly placed out of more than 120 competitors!
