Lapierre Wins First NAL Qual­i­fier

From a field of 32 com­peti­tors, Que­bec na­tive Is­abelle Lapierre and her own Cescha M took top hon­ors in front of a home crowd at the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jump­ing Bromont in Canada in early Au­gust. Af­ter a nail-bit­ing six-horse jump-off, Lapierre crossed the fin­ish line on a time of 43.39 sec­onds, edg­ing out sec­ond-place fin­isher Jen­nifer Serek, whose time was 43.7. “Ev­ery time I jump here, I feel the crowd is jump­ing with me,” Lapierre said. “I think that’s why I went faster than Jen. The crowd was push­ing me.“
