Lennon Wins Again For Ireland

For the second day running Ireland's Dermott Lennon has tasted victory in the first ever show jumping extravaganza to be held at the new Olympic Equestrian Center in Athens, which will be the scene of next year's equestrian events at the Olympic Games.

Having taken the Pegasus Speed Stakes on 'I Caesar' yesterday, the pair were in sparkling form again this morning (Saturday) to raise the Irish colours by capturing the Philippos Classic in the sweltering Greek capital.

The current World Number 1 Individual Rider, Lennon has clearly shrugged off the injury that had plagued him since winning the World Individual Crown in Jerez in 2001 - the first Irish rider ever to hold this title.

Most of the Irish team, under Chef d'Equipe Lt. Col. Gerry Mullins, are resting for the remainder of the day in preparation for tommorrow's Grand Prix event.
