Exceptional support for 5 Portuguese riders “BEIJING 2008”

Created for the Barcelona Games in 1992, the athlete scholarship programme once again provides essential financial support for the preparation and qualification of 5 Portuguese riders for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing in 2008.

The following riders have been included in the programme, effective from 1st August 2005: Francisco Rocha, (show jumping) Level 3, and four dressage riders, Nuno Vicente, André Parada, Miguel Ralão Duarte and Carlos Pinto at Level 4.

Olympic Solidarity therefore hopes to provide these athletes with optimal training conditions, specialised coaching and access to high-level sports facilities, regular medical and scientific controls, full-board accommodation and financial assistance to help them participate in Olympic qualification competitions.
