So with the 2016 Para-Olympics all over the team at Stamanol would like to say a huge congratulations to a very special lady and her amazing steed.
Katie and Marquis have been based in Holland in training and competing at qualifiers since March hoping and praying they made the team. Well the news was all good and the whole situation then started to really sink in.
With cold weather in Europe and Katie fighting the flu not an easy thing with her condition (MS) she continued to push herself training hard under the watchful eye of Tristan.
Arriving in Rio to extremely hot temps was another challenge the whole team had to endure.
With scores of 68% in her first test and 67.920% in the 2nd Katie finished in 12 place. That however finished her in 10th place in her grade in the world a fantastic achievement her overall scores making her the 2nd highest Australian rider behind Lisa Martin.
Katie you have done us and Australia proud your hard work and dedication has certainly paid off.
We look forward to catching up with you in a few weeks when you and the big cheeky Red fella fly back home. :) :) #sponsoredrider#stamanol#katieUmback
