essica Springsteen made her Olympic debut in Tokyo today but narrowly missed out on a spot in the individual jumping finals.
The 29-year-old daughter of Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band wife, Patti Scialfa, was eliminated from the individual competition during the qualifying round, finishing in a tie for 31st place — with the top 30 getting the chance to go for the gold.
But Jessica, who is ranked 14 in the world in show jumping, may get another shot at bringing home a medal on Friday during the jumping team event.
'All in all, I'm thrilled with the round and I'm excited for the rest of the week,' she said, according to the AP.

The Japanese decorations on the jumping course look cool.
Just because you don’t give the horse a medal doesn’t mean it’s an individual event. Horse lives matter.
Feel bad the horse missed out.
Guess she wasn’t born to jump
She looks older than 29.
Her horse: Don Juan van de Donkhoeve
Her boyfriend: Lorenzo De Luca
Too bad her boyfriend doesn’t have a noble title like her horse.
Maybe in 30 years she’ll talk about her glory days.
I wonder if she is as woke as her dad.
I guess she wasn’t born to run?
Unless you are a transgender Equestrian. In that case you are NOT an Equestrienne; you are still an Equestrian.
For a collectivist equity guy, Bruce sure has a lot of stuff.
I remember reading some time back that Bruce Springsteen spent a million dollars on a horse for his daughter.
Daddy can only buy you so much. In the real world individual effort still counts. Maybe she will get a participation trophy.
horse showing - the ultimate white supremacy sport (come on, how a many blacks have you seen competing in horse shows?) - surprised ole Bruce would allow his daughter to participate in the blatant show of white supremacy.
There are plenty of black billionaires and millionaires around. Nothing stopping their kids from taking up this sport.
If she’s ‘29’, she’s been rode hard and put up wet......................
That would be trans-SPECIES!..................
They should give the horse the medal, not the rider
Equestrian competition is really just a contest of who can throw more money at their horse hobby.
How about the breeder/trainer?
