OLYMPIC equestrian gold medallist Stuart Tinney
produced show jumping perfection to claim an
unexpected Australian International Three Day
Event title in Adelaide yesterday.
Tinney, riding Panamera, captured his second
Australian International title in three years with a
faultless performance at the city’s east parklands
before a record crowd.
The Sydney 2000 Olympic teams gold medallist
recorded no jump or time faults in the defining
show jumping phase to overhaul the leaders.
Tinney finished on 51.30 points, eclipsing Sonja
Johnson, on Parkiarrup Illicit Liaison, with 53.80
points and emerging rider Emma Mason, on F1
Pharinelli, was third on 55.20 points.
Overnight leader Shane Rose, on Taurus, endured
a horror show jumping stage with 16 jump faults -
only one rider jump faulted more times - and slid
to fifth place.
Rose’s slip-ups allowed Tinney, aiming to ride for
Australia at his fourth Olympics in London next
year, to rise from a fourth position overnight to
take overall honours.
“She (Panamera) is a very good jumper... Read more
THE stage is set for Ricky Ponting to play one of the
most memorable innings of his career, with Australia
needing 168 on the final day to win the second Test
against South Africa in Johannesburg.
Australia is 3-142 at stumps after 37 overs with former
captain Ponting 54 not out and his successor Michael
Clarke new at the crease and unbeaten on 1.
South Africa were eventually bowled out for 339 in
their second dig shortly after lunch on day four, setting
Australia a record victory target of 310 to square the series.
While all eyes will now be on Ponting, the star of the
show for Australia on Sunday was teenage fast bowling
sensation Pat Cummins, who took 6-79.
In doing so he became the second youngest player in
history to take six wickets in an innings of a Test, and
Cummins described his breakout day as “surreal.”
The 18-year-old said the pitch is good enough for
Australia to be considered favourites.
“I think we’ve got ourselves in a brilliant position,”
“Obviously after a long day yesterday, today has been a
great day for us and I think if we put in a good couple of
hours tomorrow we’re in the box seat.
“The game is in the balance right now but we’ve got
ourselves back into it and with someone like Ricky there
at the moment, who looks pretty settled, it’s an exciting
set up for tomorrow.
“Swing is the main thing to look out for, a... Read more
