NEWS

After the second day of play at the third edition of the US Polo Assn.-FIP Ladies European Polo
Championship, hosted by the Polo Club La Mimosa in Pogliano Milanese, everything remains to be decided.
The teams that lost on day one both made a comeback (England-Italy 6-5.5 and Germany-Ireland 6-5.5)
and now every team has won and lost a match. Saturday’s matches will be decisive in establishing who
qualifies for Sunday’s finals when the winner will be decided.

ENGLAND-ITALY 6-5.5
In the first match England beat Italy 6-5.5, at the end of a game suspended for a long time following an
injury during the third chukka when the captain of the Italian team Costanza Marchiorello was hurt
(breaking her left foot in a fall). When play resumed with England leading 3-2.5, the Italians fielded
Costanza’s sister Vittoria Marchiorello, trying to contain the strong opponents. Heloise Wilson Smith was
the best player on the winning team, scoring four of the six goals for England, well supported by Emma
Tomlinson Wood and Millie Hughes who scored the other two goals. Italy’s Camilla Rossi scored two goals
following fouls with the other goal scored during the first chukka by Costanza Marchiorello.

GERMANY-IRELAND 6-5.5
The match between Germany and Ireland was even more exciting, with the Germans off to a brilliant start
ending the first chukka 3-1.5 with one goal each scored by Hana Grill, Eva Bruhl and Marie Haupt and
starting the second chukka on a brilliant 4-1.5. Ireland soon made a comeback in particular thanks to
Siobhan Herbst and Ina Lalor, but after managing to get to 4-3.5 the last two goals scored by Grill and Bruhl
guaranteed Germany a win. The second foul that led to a goal scored by Lalor resulted in the match
finishing on 6-5.5.

RESULTS AND PROGRAMME
Yesterday: Italy-Germany 6.5-6, Ireland-England 7.5-3. Today: England-Italy 6-5.5; Germany-Ireland 6-5.5.
Tomorrow day off. Saturday at 3 pm Germany-England and at 5 pm Italy-Ireland. Sunday at 10.30 am final

The third edition of the US Polo Assn.-FIP Ladies European Polo Championship, held at the Polo Club La
Mimosa, in Pogliano Milanese, started with a few surprises. In the first match played the Italian hosts beat
outgoing champions from Germany 6.5-6, while in the second match Ireland beat England 7.5-3.

ITALY-GERMANY 6.5-6
The Italians started with a 2.5 goal lead, an advantage determined by the team’s lower handicap (12
compared to Germany’s 16). In the first chukka (the match consists of 6 chukkas each lasting 4.30 minutes)
the Italians moved into the lead with a goal scored by team captain Costanza Marchiorello. It was a
particularly exciting match with two teams ready to equalise the scores shot by shot. Eva Bruhl (hp6) was
the top player for Germany scoring four of the five goals in spite of being injured during the first chukka,
but Italian newcomers to the team Alice Coria and in particular Camila Rossi, immediately revealed a
significant understanding with veteran players Marchiorello and Ginevra Visconti, essential for keeping
Germany at bay. Marchiorello was decisive in the last chukka when with a double last minute save she
avoided Italy taking another goal which would have meant losing the match.
«Germany had beaten us in the final three years ago – said Marchiorello – so tension was really high, but we
were ready and had the determination we needed after all the training we managed to do together in
recent weeks. Having gotten off to a good start with that first early goal we started to show what we could
do. It wasn’t easy to contain their attempts to make a comeback but we did well to keep cool right to the
end».

IRELAND-ENGLAND 7.5-3
Starting off with half a goal advantage thanks to handicapping, the Irish surprised the English thanks to a
very united foursome that took turns to show off the skills of every player one by one, in particular Ina
Lalor. Among the English players Heloise Wilson Smith and Emma Tomlinson Wood played hard to make a
late comeback that was however kept well under control by the Irish thanks to four goals scored in the first
three chukka.

Like all equestrian disciplines, be they included in the Olympic Games or not, Polo is a sport in which men and women compete together.

It is true that in the equestrian world gender equality is very well known but polo, the most ancient of equestrian sports, was the last to acknowledge the arrival of ladies in a sporting context since it was quite unusual to see women playing top level polo until about two decades ago, while ladies were already winning gold medals in Olympic disciplines such as show jumping, eventing and dressage as well as in World Championships.

For some years now, however, ladies polo has started to catch up quickly and the number of players is constantly increasing. Tournaments reserved to ladies, which initially seemed to be something really new, have now multiplied and the calendar is  intense and exciting in many countries.

The International Polo Federation (FIP) created the European Championships in 2018 and Argentina too has launched a ladies’ version of the most important tournaments in the world, the Camera, Republica and Abierto.
