Egypt's rider Karim El-Zoghby reached the third qualifying round of the Rio Olympic Games on Tuesday to maintain his fine displays.

El-Zoghby advanced after finishing 42nd on the individual leaderboard of the second qualifying round with a penalty score of nine points (one time and eight jumping penalties).

Although it was nowhere near his flawless display in the first round, El-Zoghby still got the job done to continue his bid towards reaching the final.

The 3rd qualifying round, which will determine who will reach the final, will take place on Wednesday.
