The Equestrian Federation of India (EFI) said on Monday that Anush Agarwalla, who earned a record individual bronze medal at the 2023 Asian Games, has guaranteed the nation’s spot in the Paris Olympic Games in the dressage discipline.

Agarwalla was given the quota based on his performance in four FEI events: Wroclaw, Poland (73.485%), Kronenberg, Netherlands (74.4%), Frankfurt, Germany (72.9%), and Mechelen, Belgium (74.2%). Agarwalla earned an individual bronze in Hangzhou.

“I am very proud and grateful to have been successful for securing a berth for India at the Paris Olympic Games. Competing in the Olympics has always been a childhood dream for me and I’m proud to be part of this historical moment for the nation. I will continue doing what I have always been doing: staying focused, being disciplined, working hard, setting goals and achieving them. I am confident that I will be selected to represent India at this prestigious stage,” said Agarwalla.
