Although the remaining individual slots are to be "won" by gaining points for the ORL, no individual athlete actually qualify directly for Rio through the ORL system. The highest ranked pairs earn a place for their National Olympic Committee and that NOC can always choose to send a different qualified couple -- or nobody -- to the actual games.&nbsp;</p> Shows Tue, 09 Feb 2016 04:46:14 +0000 Astrid Appels 53375 at http://www.eurodressage.com/equestrian
