Equestrian Star Ibrahim Bisharat has stepped up his bid to qualify for an incredible fourth Olympic Games over the Festive period.
Bisharat performed superbly at the Qatar International Show Jumping Championship, finishing second in the flagship Grand Prix of Doha event, to earn crucial points towards Rio qualification.
Bisharat was riding Bowie Z and would have won but for four faults on his best time of 46.61, which allowed Qatar’s Bassem Hassan Mohammed to take the top prize. Bisharat won JD 29,000 for his efforts.
The previous day, Bisharat enjoyed first place in the 145cm class riding Brown Sugar to prove that he is in the sort of form that saw him qualify to previous Olympics in Athens, Beijing and London. He also picked up JD 6,000 for that victory.
Bisharat will step up his bid for Rio points in the coming weeks.
