Platinum Performance Clients Take Home Medals for the USA
Date:9/2/2008

SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Platinum Performance client McLain Ward proclaimed the Unites States Show Jumping victory at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, on August 19, as "probably the greatest day for North America in the history of the sport."

Winning the first ever jump-off in Olympic Games history, the U.S. team broke a tie with Canada to win the Team Show Jumping title at the Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian Venue in Sha Tin. It was a perfect ride in 38.45 seconds -- the third-fastest time in the jump-off -- by Platinum Performance client, Will Simpson, 49, of Thousand Oaks, Calif., riding Carlson vom Dach, a 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding, who sealed the victory and clinched the gold for the team. Other members of the gold-medal team were Laura Kraut, Beezie Madden and Platinum Performance client, McLain Ward, 33, riding Sapphire, a 13-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare. Ward and Sapphire were also a part of the U.S. team that won gold at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Two other Platinum Performance clients turned out stellar performances for the U.S.: Gina Miles, 34, and her horse McKinlaigh, a 14-year-old Irish-bred gelding.

Miles had hoped only to qualify for the individual final in the duos Olympic debut, but their decade-long partnership paid off with a silver medal in Individual Eventing, a combination of dressage, jumping and cross-country tests. Miles entered the show jumping final round in fourth place, and moved up to 2nd after a clean run to clinch the silver medal.

Over the years, Platinum Performance clients -- from swimmers to triathletes, and equestrians -- have wowed the world with their stellar performances at international sporting competitions, including the Pan American Games and the Olympics. President Mark Herthel congratulates the Summer Games competitors, saying the company is proud and honored to have watched them achieve their success with such outstanding performances.

"Will, McLain and Gina have been Platinum Performance clients for years," explains Herthel. "We were so proud to watch them capture their Olympic medals."
