Jessica Springsteen, the daughter of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, is one of the American athletes who has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics.
The Colts Neck native, who is the second of the legendary musicians’ three adult children, has been riding for the most of her life (since she was a Kindergartner).
“I’ve been dreaming of this since I can remember!” Jessica Springsteen said on Instagram Tuesday. “Endless thanks to my team, friends, and family for helping me make this a reality!”
On Monday, the United States equestrian team unveiled their jumping lineup ahead of the opening ceremonies on July 23.
Springsteen is one of more than 20 athletes from New Jersey who will compete in a variety of sports in the Tokyo Olympics.
Before the pandemic pushed the summer games back a year, her parents were chosen chairman of the US Equestrian Team Foundation’s fundraising banquet in the winter of 2019.
Springsteen stated at the time, “Patti and I have been connected with the horse world for more than 20 years, since Jess started riding when she was five years old.”
“Our engagement in the riding world has greatly improved our lives. I’ve had the privilege of watching my daughter mature into a strong young woman. Year after year, I’ve had the opportunity to see the finest athletes in the world compete, and I know what it takes,” he said.
