TONI LEVISTE IN WORLD CUP
Manila, April 19, 1999 - Toni Leviste, daughter of former Batangas Governor Antonio Leviste and stepdaughter of Senator Loren Legarda, has emerged as the country's premiere equestrienne, as she prepares to compete in the 1999 World Cup Showjumping Finals to be held in Goteborg, Sweden from April 21-25.
This will be the first time that South East Asia is represented at the prestigious World Cup Finals, where only the world's best riders will participate.
Leviste, together with her faithful Irish mount, "Cartier's Leap of Faith," qualified for the World Cup Finals after a successful tour at the South East Asian League World Cup Qualifiers from August to November last year.
Recently, Leviste placed 3rd at the 1999 "Sunshine Tour" grand prix held in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. She competed against 40 riders representing 13 nations.
