Sports Court Denies Irish Equestrian’s Appeal
July 30, 2012
The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it rejected Denis Lynch’s challenge of Horse Sport Ireland because it had no authority to hear the case. Irish officials had nominated Cian O’Connor to replace Lynch getting one of two entries in individual jumping. Lynch was originally selected then withdrawn after his horse, Lantinus, was disqualified from a recent event because of health issues.
