Bartek Kwiatek drove two Silesian stal­lions in International Driving Event Altenfelden in Austria, this is extremely unusu­al that one ath­lete wins two medals at inter­na­tion­al driv­ing event!

Kwiatek proved his class once again, and the two Silesian stal­lions he drove showed fight­ing spir­it and top form. Lokan śl. (by Largis śl., out of Lokana śl. by Glöckner old­brg) was 1st after first day’s dressage phase and Niger śl. (by Turkus śl., out of Niwa śl. by Alpinex xx) was 2nd. After the second day and the mara­thon phase in 30°C heat Lokan was still 1st and Niger was 3rd. On Sunday Kwiatek drove Niger clear in the cones but col­lec­ted 3.26 pen­al­ties for exceed­ing the time allowed. This res­ult gave them final 3rd place. Lokan, who was the last one to go, knocked over two cones and finally ended up on 2nd place. The gold medal went to one of the world top drivers – Michael Barbey from Switzerland.
