Host team wins Jaeger-LeCoultre Polo Masters in Veytay
In front of an audience of 5,000 people, the host team Veytay Jaeger-LeCoultre won the final of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polo Masters beating Lynx Energy by 4 goals to 3.5. Throughout the four periods, the battle was fierce and intense, as both teams were homogeneous.
After seven days and no less than thirteen matches played, the finals were held this Sunday on the superb facilities of the Club Polo Veytay, Mies (VD). In a very disputed game and despite the three goals by French Brieuc Rigaux (hcp 5), there was nothing they could do in front of the exceptionally skilled Simon Lunginbühl (hcp 2) and Argentine Horacio Fernandez Llorente (hcp 4) Veytay of Jaeger-LeCoultre, each scoring once.
The high quality of the final game was also given by the very few interruptions, for which spectators held their breath till the very end. The audience had the chance to attend, during an interlude, a polo demonstration given by Eduardo Novillo Astrada, a long time friend of the brand and longtime champion of the world of polo.
Celebrity actor Vincent Perez attended the prestigious event and was introduced to the latest creations of the Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux.
The four team players Veytay Jaeger-LeCoultre, Yasmine Firmenich Luginbühl (Cap. Hcp 0), Martin Luginbühl (Hcp 2), Simon Luginbühl (Hcp 2) and Horacio Fernandez Llorente (Hcp 4) were presented with a Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute to 1931 specially engraved on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of partnership Jaeger-LeCoultre and Polo Club Veytay.
