Jessica Springsteen, daughter of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bruce Springsteen, is part of a four-member jumping team selected to compete at the Tokyo Olympics, US Equestrian announced Monday.
Springsteen, 29, will make his Olympic debut. He served as a substitute for the 2012 Summer Games in London, then failed in his bid to host the 2016 Summer Games in Rio. She will ride Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, a 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood stallion.
Springsteen, who is ranked 27th in the world, joins a team made up of Olympic veterans Kent Farrington, Laura Kraut and two-time gold medalist McLain Ward. Ward helped the U.S. jumping team win gold medals in 2004 and 2008. (Kraut was part of the 2008 jumping team). Ward and Farrington were part of the silver medal-winning team at the 2016 Games in Rio.
