FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JESSICA PHOENIX WITHDRAWS PAVAROTTI FROM THE TOKYO GAMES
Tokyo – July 29, 2021
Two-time Olympian and five-time Pan AM Medalist Jessica Phoenix, Canada’s most decorated eventer, has withdrawn Pavarotti from the 2020 Games.
“Today we have made the heartbreaking decision to withdraw Pavarotti from the Tokyo Olympics due to a minor injury sustained on our last gallop. While I am devastated that Rotti will not get to compete and show his talent on the world stage, I am thankful that he will be back to his usual self soon. I am blessed that our Canadian riders are a tight group of supportive teammates who rally around each other in our times of need. Thank you everyone for your support during this challenging time and we look forward to cheering on Colleen Loach and her incredible horse Qorry Blue d’Argouges” – Jessica Phoenix.
In typical style, Phoenix is a gracious role model of sportsmanship and kindness, cheering on her fellow Canadians.
So, let’s do our part Canada, and show your love and support for this remarkable horsewoman and her beloved equine partner.
