Spectacular equestrian show: St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow 2011
Cartier have won the 26th Cartier Polo World Cup on Snow in St Moritz
St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow is a world of sport that combines strength, elegance, speed, pride and the traditional British love of fair play. St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow is the world’s most prestigious winter polo tournament. Four high-goal teams with handicaps between 15 and 18 goals battle for the coveted Trophy on the frozen surface of Lake St. Moritz. The special conditions on snow, and the unaccustomed altitude of 1800 metres, place exceptional demands on man and animal alike.
15,000 spectators watched the high-calibre sporting contest (presented by Asprey) on the frozen lake where weather condition were chilly, crisp and beautiful. Cartier, Brioni, Julius Baer and Maserati battled it out over the four days for polo supremacy, placing in that order. France emerged victorious ahead of England, Switzerland and Germany in this year’s competition—the trophy was won in a fiercely fought 5:4 final against England, in which Nacho Gonzalez scored the winning goal and seized the title of Most Valuable Player.
