Brazil has come up with something very special for this year’s World Championship qualification. The qualifying runs are drawn by the two World Championship judges Sari Mikkilä from Finland and Toshiyuki Oba from Japan. They just created the courses on paper, while the runs itself are judged by local judges. This is due to the large distance between the countries and with other scheduling conflicts. The Brazilians have great expectations for the 2019 World Championship in Finland. The country is considered as one of the emerging agility nations. At the moment, they are in 16th place in the overall medal table behind Italy. The qualifications are on the first June weekend from 1. to 2. June, at Hipica São Roque in Sao Paulo.
