Coyle, O'Connor and Sweetman nominated for Olympics

Horse Sport Ireland have nominated Daniel Coyle, Cian O'Connor and Shane Sweetnam to represent Ireland in Show Jumping and Eventing at the Paris Olympics.

Show jumping high performance director Michael Blake and eventing high performance Director Dag Albert made their selections this evening for the games, with the competitions taking place in late July.

Blake selected Daniel Coyle with the horse Legacy, Cian O'Connor with the horse Maurice and Shane Sweetnam with the hose James Kann Cruz for nomination to the Olympic Federation of Ireland.

The P Alternate combination will be Bertram Allen with the horse Pacino Amiro.

Blake said: "It is the greatest honour for an athlete to be chosen to represent their country at an Olympic Games and I'm delighted to have chosen these athletes for consideration for Paris.

"We are enjoying an excellent period of Irish jumping at the moment and it is testament to the riders and all of their teams who look after the horses at home, and when they compete, that they have all reached such a high level.

"The athletes and horses I have chosen have been performing brilliantly, week-in-week-out, on the international stage and we’ll give it everything we have to achieve what we’re setting out to do.

"I would like to thank the Olympic Federation of Ireland, Sport Ireland, Horse Sport Ireland and everyone involved in show jumping in Ireland for their support and I hope we’ll do everyone proud."
