Jur Vrieling (1st): I saw the first three go, and I was very lucky because Eric van der Vleuten and Leopold van Asten (Dutch riders who didn’t make it into the jump-off) helped me with my plan. Leopold said - whatever happens keep coming, I think you can make it if you are fast enough over the last three fences!

Marlon Modolo Zanotelli BRA (3rd): I was really pleased with today and already was so happy with the start of the season in Oslo. Celena fought her heart out today and I am so happy.  For me, it is difficult to get invites to the world cup qualifiers from Brazil, so I will keep trying hard to get there.  I am based in Belgium and I want to say thank you to my owners and all the support team who are there for me. My wife (Angelica Augustsson SWE) is also a showjumper and I called her today and she help me and gave me advice so I am so happy!”

Guilherme Jorge (BRA), Course Designer: “I am very very happy with the course today and the results. I always feel like it’s lucky to have 8 clears. and today I got 9 clear rounds so I am very happy. Today, we saw the top quality of riders and horses. The team here did a fantastic job with the fences, and the outcome was incredible.”
