Sophie and Janeiro at Hickstead 2012
Exciting Olympic Games news came in July when Sophie Christiansen, daughter of faculty members, Mr. & Mrs. Karl and Caroline Christiansen, was selected for the British Paralympic Equestrian Team. Sophie was the Olympic Gold champion in Beijing four years ago, and enthusiasm and support is in high gear as Sophie prepares to compete in her home country.
The Paralympic Games will take place in the impressive grounds of Greenwich Park, where riders will compete in Individual Championship and Freestyle Tests across five classifications, as well as a Team Test, between 30th August and 4th September.
The TASIS community is proud to support Sophie and her horse Janeiro as they go for gold in a few short weeks.
Good Luck Sophie!
