It seemed like such a simple idea

The Red Saddlepad for Show Jumping goes to … I still can’t tell. The official results on the London 2012 site list everyone, down to Beezie Madden in a three-way tie for 72nd. Given that the top 20 moved on to round B, the last place for today ought to be whoever is listed in 20th, right? Which would be a tie between Daniel Bluman on Sancha & Edwina Tops-Alexander on Itot Du Chateau. But I’m only guessing. None of the sites I found list today’s results alone. They all reference the Olympic site.

How can something as simple as honoring one rider’s effort have turned into such a statistical hairball?
