Jessica Springsteen wasn't born to run to the podium at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Springsteen, the daughter of legendary rock musician Bruce Springsteen, failed to qualify in the equestrian individual jumping finals at the Summer Games. She was ranked No. 14 entering the tournament at the Tokyo Olympics and 30 of the 73 participants that competed in Tuesday's event ended up qualifying.
The main Springsteen failed to qualify is that her horse, Don Juan van de Donkehove, began to have issues during the later stages of the 14-jump course.
While the individual jumping finals didn't go her way, Springsteen does have one more shot to make it to the promised land at the Tokyo Olympics. The 29-year old will participate in a jumping event as a member of Team USA's four-rider team on Friday. It's not her first shot at the Olympics either, as Springsteen served as an alternate during the 2012 Olympics.
She did, however, fail to make the team that went to 2016 Games in Rio.
Springsteen began riding horses when she was just four. Her father is an accomplished musician that has won 20 Grammy Awards and written hit songs like "Born to Run," "Glory Days," and "Dancing In The Dark."
