Christophe Ameeuw, president and founder of EEM, organizer of the Longines Masters of Paris and the Longines Masters Series (Hong-Kong, Lausanne, Paris) commented that this Grand Prix perfectly reflected the sport, passion and boldness which prevailed in Paris-Villepinte over the weekend. "This 100% French podium is the perfect conclusion. An event like ours must absolutely serve the sport and keep bringing on to new fans the best showjumping has to offer. During this weekend, we have experienced historical moments and kept our good spirits despite external constraint. We also innovated with the introduction of a new competition for the best ponies in the world as our duty is to always challenge ourselves, fly high, experience new things and pursue our ideas. There is still some way to go and many people have yet to discover this sport which, to my eyes, is the most beautiful in the world. Therefore, we need to cross community borders and create new fans. This actually was one of the bets of this youth oriented 11th edition".
55 000 people visited the 11th edition of the Longines Masters of Paris; the competitions broadcast in 115 different countries reached over 265 millions homes. Season V of the Longines Masters Series will be launched in a few weeks in Hong Kong, from February 14 to 16, 2020 where more history will be made. Save the date!
