OLYMPIAN BISHARAT HITS TOP FORM
Jan 04, 2016
Three-Time Olympian Ibrahim Bisharat appears to be hitting top form at just the right time after clinching the 145cm show jumping title at the Al Rayyan International Equestrian Championship held in Qatar.
Bisharat ended the year with victory last week at the Qatar International Show Jumping Championship and rode Bowie Z to another gold at the prestigious three-day Al Rayyan meet to start 2016 in the best way possible.
Bisharat, who is aiming to qualify for a fourth Olympics in Rio de Janeiro this summer, jumped a clear round in 40.09 seconds, beating riders from the Czech Republic and Qatar into second and third respectively.
The event has provided Bisharat with more Olympic qualifying points, putting him in a much stronger position than he was in just 10 days ago.
More than 100 riders competed in Qatar from the Middle East and Europe
