|EA statement - 18th Jan 2017|
EA convened an independent Review Panel chaired by Leigh Clifford AO and comprising Dr Derek Major, veterinarian and Georgia Widdup, Chair of the Eventing Selection Panel and lawyer.
The Panel reviewed the circumstances surrounding the nomination of Sue Hearn to the AOC for selection for the Rio Olympic Games. The Panel concluded that, based on the information available to the Dressage Selection Panel at the relevant time, the nomination of Sue Hearn to the AOC was appropriate.
EA regards the matter as concluded and does not propose to make further statements.
