The daughter of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa was crowned Olympian in her first participation in the Olympic Games.
Jessica Springsteen and the U.S. equestrian team won the silver medal in the group jump final on Saturday, August 7 at the Tokyo Olympics.

While Jessica Springsteen, daughter of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, and Juan van de Donkhoeve's horse failed to qualify for the individual individual jump earlier this week - the horse cut a railing, destroying "one by one another impressive race ", as the Associated Press wrote, the US equestrian team faced Sweden in the final of the race.

In the event, the last equestrian event of the 2020 Olympics, the American equestrian team with Jessica Springsteen, Laura Kraut and McLain Ward "had a total of eight errors in the final to lead to a jump-off with Sweden.

It is unbelievable that all six riders had clean laps in the jump-off, but Sweden's total time of 122.90 seconds made it take gold by 1.3 seconds, with the US having to come to terms with the silver medal. ", Reports Olympics.com.

"The collaboration you have with your horse is everything, and I have a very, very strong collaboration with Don. "Sometimes you get a horse and it may take a long time to get to know each other, but we quickly came together and since then we can build on it," Springsteen told People.

Although Jessica Springsteen was born in Los Angeles, she spent much of her childhood improving her riding skills on her family farm in New Jersey.

"For me, one thing I've always loved about riding - it's my love of the horse first - but when I'm in the riding center and the bell rings, I'm absolutely 100% focused on it, so any external pressure or whatever really happens "I'm fading and I'm really focused on that moment," he told the AP earlier this week.

"I am so grateful that my parents supported me throughout my career. He was with me on this journey. "It was a huge dream for them too, so I am very happy to be able to make them proud."
