After Jorge Fonseca’s bronze in judo, contestant Luciana Deniz may bring another medal for Portugal at the Olympics. This is said by the Portuguese Equestrian Federation (FEP), which indicates to PÚBLICO that it intends to improve Luciana ninth in showjumping in Rio 2016.
“Is it unrealistic to think of a medal? Absolutely. We were ninth in Rio and now we want to do more, maybe even a medal. That’s the goal. Luciana and Duar.” [cavalo] Their preparation has been complicated, but they are in very good shape”, confirmed Bruno Rent, president of the Football Association, who added that the Brazilian Portuguese athlete’s horse is “fine and happy”.
Luciana competed in Tokyo on the third (11:00 a.m. from mainland Portugal), and if she qualified for the final, she would compete for the medal the next day, again at 11:00 a.m.
These were exceptional and historic results. Of course we always want more, and one horse or another could have been better. But he was very good,” he noted, recalling the uproar the Portuguese horse made.
“It was the best rated ever for a Portuguese horse and you can’t imagine the praise from the teams and judges for this horse that we have. He predicted that this would bring people into our country to compete or even buy Portuguese horses.”
