Allen wins Olympic slot



Bertram Allen from County Wexford, has won an individual Show Jumping place to the Rio Olympic Games. Allen secured the place through the Olympic rankings.

Denis Lynch just missed out on securing a second slot for Ireland. However, Denis has secured the 1st reserve slot for Ireland should another country not be able to take up their place.

Under Olympic rules, individual places are allocated to the country of the rider who secures the place rather than to the rider.
