TSX HEADLINES – for November 26, 2018: The World Equestrian Games is designed to be a showcase for all of the equestrian disciplines and bring all sectors of the sport together, once every four years.
But in 2018, under difficult conditions in Tryon, North Carolina, the event had problems and the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) now has to decide what it is going to do with the event, first staged in 1990.
Kill it? Modify it? Re-arrange it? Find out how the FEI approached the problem of its own Games which had grown too big, too expensive and too much trouble to handle.
We have the details in our Lane One commentary, plus a very busy weekend of action covered in our 29-page issue:
(1) THE TICKER: Looks like U.S. Soccer has found the new head coach for the men’s national team and the Olympic Movement avoids a major incident as Taiwan voters opt to maintain the “Chinese Taipei” designation for its athletes.
(2) THE BIG PICTURE: The newest bombshell in the sex-abuse scandal engulfing USA Gymnastics is about what the United States Olympic Committee knew as far back as 1994! Is the U.S. Congress listening to this?
(3) ALPINE SKIING: Another World Cup Slalom win for the amazing Mikaela Shiffrin, who came through for a huge crowd at Killington, Vermont on Sunday!
