Jens Fredricson (SWE) and Lunatic (SWB born 1998 by Landlord out of Utriette 17843 by Utrillo-O┬┤den, breeder Magnus Dyrendahl) jump a clear round in the first individual qualifier at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Out of the 75 riders, 32 rode clear rounds and many of the favorites for the medals could be found among these.

Lisen Bratt-Fredricson (SWE) and Matrix (SWB born 2002 by Cardento out of Medusa 17845 by Maximus-Drabant, breeder Charlotta and Jan Forsman) took off on a half-stride, way too early, and could not reach over the triple bar at 3a causing a crash landing for Lisen and almost a fall for Matrix himself. Lisen was later send for x-rays, while Matrix seemed to be unhurt. Luckily for Lisen nothing was broken.
