Springsteen’s Daughter Left Off Olympic Team

Over the weekend, the U.S. Equestrian announced their list of athletes representing Team USA, but Bruce Springsteen‘s daughter, Jessica Springsteen, will not represent the United States in the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris.

The athletes that made the cut include Kent Farrington, Laura Krant, and McLain Ward, with Karl Cool serving as an alternate. Farrington (who helped the U.S. get silver in 2016) is ranked 6th in the world and will mark his third Olympics, Ward (who was part of gold medal-winning teams in 2004 and 2008) is ranked 15th, and Kraut is ranked 35th.

During her 2021 debut at the competition alongside Kraut and Ward, Jessica Jessica helped earn a silver medal for the United States. At the time, Bruce’s daughter was ranked 27th in the world and today she is ranked 127th.

A formal statement from Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland read “We are very lucky to have three of the most experienced athletes in the sport riding horses that are in top form heading into the Games.” “Additionally, we have a strong alternate athlete horse combination in Karl and Caracole who have shown great recent form.” “Now that selection is complete, we are 100% laser-focused on Paris.”

Prior to competing at the 2021 Games, Jessica told People that it would be the “biggest honor” to represent her country and spoke about her relationship with her stallion “Sometimes you get a horse, and it can take you a long time to get to know each other, but with him, we came together quickly, and we’ve been able to build on that ever since,” she said at the time. “We definitely have a lot of trust.”
