Lexington, Kentucky (AP) – The daughter of rock icon Bruce Springsteen and singer-songwriter Patissiafa has been named one of the four riders on the U.S. jump team to compete in the Tokyo Olympics.
US Equestrian announced on Monday that Jessica Rae Springsteen will make her Olympic debut. One 29-year-old woman said her selection would make her lifelong dream come true.
Springsteen will team up with Kent Farrington, Laura Kraut and McLain Ward when the equestrian competition opens on August 3rd. The team is led by chefs Robert Ridoland and Lizzie Cheson.
“We are confident that the veteran driver group in Tokyo is currently at the forefront and will peak at just the right time,” Lidland said in a statement.
Farrington is 40 years old, 45 in Ward and 55 in Sauerkraut, and the trio have competed in a total of seven Olympics.
Springsteen, third after Clout and Ward, will ride the 12-year-old stallion Don Juan van der Don Hove.
