It’s a surprise only one year before the European Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden: the Swedish Equestrian Federation will not extend Kyra Kyrklund’s contract as assistant of chef d’équipe Bo Jena. For six years she worked in this function; she was responsible for the organisation of the rider’s training and the personal trainers. Mats Eriksson from the Swedish Equestrian Federation said the budget was too tight to retain the position. Kyrklund herself knows that after the Olympic Games the money from the Swedish Olympic Committee gets reduced and will be increased in time for the next Olympic Games. Kyrklund received her money in part from the Committee and the Federation.
