Rolex Grand Slam
What was once reserved for the classical hero is now conceded to sports: to create a legend or a myth. Only exceptional achievements and the height of concentration create successes that are never forgotten. Even today, almost 60 years later, the soccer “Miracle of Bern” is remembered – as is Halla, who carried her rider Hans Günther Winkler in 1956 to a World Championship win. Athletes such as Muhammad Ali remain unforgettable, as are Jesse Owens, Pelé, Steffi Graf or Michael “Air” Jordan. The world of championship sports is the World of the Rolex Grand Slam. Three of the most prestigious and famous Equestrian Sport Venues in the world have joined together to combine not only more than 5.7 million Euro prize money, but also 1,000 accredited journalists, 700,000 spectators and more than 200 years of Equestrian Sport History. Legends can grow out of these traditions. If one rider wins the final Grand Prix at each of the three tournaments, one after the other, they win the Rolex Grand Slam, and with that an extra one million Euros in prize money. However, a win in the Rolex Grand Slam is far more. It will make the rider legendary.
The system of the Rolex Grand Slam is simple: Anyone, who wins three shows in a row, receives 1 million Euros on top of the prize-money of each show. Moreover, anyone who wins two out of the three shows, also receives a bonus. If two shows are won in succession, the bonus is 500,000 Euros. If the rider is successful in qualifying for the “two out of three mode”, but doesn’t claim the victories at two consecutive shows, the bonus total 250,000 Euros. It is only the rider that counts, not the horse. It is possible to claim the bonus riding different horses. This system is infinite, it is not limited to a calendar year. It is a never ending story.
