Milan, 1 July 2021 – Nine flags from foreign countries are represented in the first edition of the Milan San Siro Jumping Cup.

For the inaugural edition of the Milanese competition from outside the border, in fact, the presence of knights and amazons of Argentina, Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Monaco, Russia e Switzerland.

The latter is the nation that comes up with the very interesting business card with Clarissa Crotta, Werner Muff – both at the London 2012 Olympic Games (he and her reserve starter) e Niklaus Rutschi, a rider who in the 2019 season – the last if we consider the stop for last year’s pandemic – was a point of reference for the red-crusader team both in the European Championships in Rotterdam and in the final of the Longines Nations Cup of Barcelona.

Germany can also rely on a knight who needs no introduction: Toni Hassmann, which among its successes boasts, as well as three affirmations in the prestigious Hamburg derby, the victory in one of the first stages of the FEI World Cup by Fieracavalli Verona (2004).

The tenth flag of the Milan San Siro Jumping Cup 2021 squad is obviously that of Italy.

Among the entries that arrived, the cream of the riders who most played a role in the history of Italian equitation in the thirty years 1990/2010 is highlighted.

A real poker of aces, still firmly at the top of the rankings: Roberto Arioldi, Arnaldo Bologni, Gianni Govoni e Filippo Moyersoen.

Representing the first blue team of the moment, and on the field in Milan in ‘approach’ mode to Reisenbeck European Championships (end of August), there will be Luca Marziani, reconfirmed Italian champion in the current year and member of the Italian team in the Coppa del CSIO of Rome Piazza di Siena, and Paolo Paini.

The latter, after having also participated in the last edition of the Roman competition, was recently part of the winning team of the Bulgarian Nations Cup (Bojourishte).

In a first overview of the Italy team on the field, we cannot fail to mention the presence of Bruno Chimirri, the knight whom the Azzurri consider ‘the captain’, who this time will also have his daughter Elisa among his opponents, one of the most promising Italian amazons, only a few weeks of age.
