Cian O’Connor Believes in Victory Before CAS

It has almost been forgotten that the Irish made a formal appeal at the European Championship in Aachen because Cian O’Connor was disturbed by a member of the course team, having the next fence down and therefore costing Ireland the qualification for Rio. After the rejection on the spot had been rejected by the FEI the Irish federation and the rider went to the CAS. Now the Irish Examiner reports that a court hearing will take place in the middle of December. O’Connor told the newspaper that he is certain they will win the case before the CAS and get a place for Rio.
