中央电视台回顾华天奥运参赛

  •     We’re now joined in the studio by the man himself, Alex Hua Tian.
  •     Q1: You have been described as one in a billion, a fitting monikker as you’re China’s only representative in equestrian at the Olympics. During the recent Summer Games in Rio, you had your best result ever with an eighth place finish in individual eventing. Can you tell us about that experience and how it might have been different from your first Olympics in Beijing, 2008?
  •     Q2: Equestrian is a unique sport as it’s not all about you, it’s really all about teamwork between you and your horse. You qualified two horses for Rio, Harbour Pilot C and Don Geniro, but only took Don to Brazil. Can you tell us about how important it is to build a strong relationship with your horse and how you go about choosing one and doing that?
  •     Q3: As China’s top equestrian competitor, you have a unique role in helping to build the sport here in China. What are you doing to encourage more people to get on a horse?
  •     Q4: So what’s next for you? What big competitions are you working towards and what are your goals in equestrian?

中央电视台回顾华天成长

  •   Hua Tian, also known as Alex Hua, is the only competitor currently representing China on the international level, and is coming off a Top Eight finish in individual eventing at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
  •   The London-born 27-year-old became a Chinese citizen a decade ago, and has now participated in two of the past three Summer Games.
  •   Hua Tian, or Alex Hua, has been influenced by both his Chinese father and British mother. And he followed in his mom’s footsteps by taking up equestrian at the age of four, embarking on a ride into the record books.
  •   When the London native was just 14 in 2004, he became the FEI’s youngest competitor. Within three years, he had attained Chinese citizenship, and reached four-star status in the sport.
  •   Hua then took time off from his studies at Eton College to prepare for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. As a representative of the host country, he only needed to hit the minimum cutoff to qualify, but did much more, as his ranking climbed to 21st in the world, and the then-18-year-old became the youngest equestrian rider in the history of the Summer Games.
  •   Additional acclaim followed, as Hua won the Best Under-25 Competitor Prize at the 2009 Belheim International Horse Trials, as well as the HSBC Rising Star Award. That honor was presented in Copenhagen by the FEI’s President, Princess Haya of Jordan, at a ceremony considered to be the sport’s version of the Oscars. He then qualified for but did not participate in the 2010 World Equestrian Games.
  •   Two years later he fell short of returning to the Olympic stage at London 2012, but atop his mount Don Geniro rebounded in impressive fashion this past summer, by reaching the finals and placing eighth at the Rio Games.
  •   And with his list of accomplishments only getting longer, the 27-year-old Chinese equestrian competitor believes his unique ride will continue, for a long time to come.
