Chris von Martels Takes The Podium… Again!
Make it TWO medals for Chatham-Kent at the 2015 Pan-Am Games.
Ridgetown’s Chris von Martels picked up his second medal of the games on Tuesday, taking a bronze in the individual dressage event.
The 32-year-old Von Martels and Zilverstar, an 11-year-old bay Dutch Warmblood gelding, have only been working together since 2013. The combination seems to be firing on all cylinders. Make that horsepower.
Chris and the Canadian equestrian team also won a silver in the team dressage event on Sunday.
