Athina Onassis is considered a very skilled equestrian athlete. The heiress of Aristotle Onassis’s fortune has taken part in numerous international events with great success, but recently in a Cannes competition, she lost her balance and fell off her horse. Fortunately, she did not suffer any injuries.
The moment of the fall was caught on video by Alexis Mantheakis, a close associate, and associate of her father Thierry Russell. He expressed concern that something was wrong with Athena, as she seemed not to be in good shape while preparing for the competition for quite some time.
“Athina Onassis yesterday. The bad performances/luck continue as she falls from her formerly perfect performing horse Cinsey, multimillion-dollar animal, and is eliminated. What is going on after the perfect rounds and now one bad performance centre after another with horse refusals, multiple penalty points and now the worst as the horse throws her on a jump?”, he wrote.

  1. There is no reason for Matheakis to unleash a barrage of scorn against Athina, impying that something is wrong with her.
    Falling off a horse is not uncommon, even for experienced riders. They usually dust themselves off and move on .

    If you watch the full coverage you can clearly see that the horse’s hind legs did not clear the barrier , which caused the horse to jerk forward and throw Athina.

    But so what?
    She can do better next time, but she does not have to.
    Athina does not owe Mantheakis or anyone else any explanations about her riding or her life.
