PERL-BORG, Germany, Sept. 11, 2015–Japan won a team place at the 2016 Olympic Games with a slim victory Friday over South Africa vying for its first ever Olympic dressage appearance at a special qualifying event at the Peterhof Dressur Gala.

South Africa did, however, win an individual slot that will be the first Olympic dressage start from the nation. South Korea’s Dongseon Kim on Bukowski also won an individual start.

The competition was a nail-biter, going down to the last Japanese combination of Masanao Takahashi on Fabriano who needed a score of 68.600 per cent to pull even with South Africa. The pair scored 68.660 per cent and the total of the three best scores was 200.58, 0.06 ahead of South Africa on 200.52. Kazakhstan finished on 192.96 at the special event that was the last to qualify a team directly to the Olympics.

The Japanese, coached by the German father-son team of Jürgen and Christoph Koschel, burst into tears and hugged each other when the last result for their squad gave them the Olympic slot. Japan fielded a  team at the Olympics in 2008.

Japan will join Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Great Britain, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United States in the lineup. Nations can, though, qualify a so-called “composite” team if three individual combinations from the same country make the cut in the rankings.

Of the 60 starting places allocated to dressage, 20 have been set aside for individuals and South Africa and Korea join Canada and Mexico that have already claimed starting slots.
