Anyone happen to read the recent news articles about the British Olympic team selection being unfair? A father is complaining his daughter was the victim of favoritism? Says it’s not sour grapes. He says the young man selected is the son of a famous British rider/trainer rather than his daughter. He is a wealthy business man.
I really haven’t been following this until these news articles. I looked up at the FEI stats, the daughter is ranked around 95 and the young man is ranked around 140.
I know the FEI ranking is not really used for team selection in USA but it can indicate current winnings.
Anyone know the specific details here? Sour grapes or more to the story?
