There are still surprises to be had during the Olympic year: Markus Fuchs takes over the training of the Ukrainian show jumpers. Until last year the Swiss rider was coach of the team from Qatar, then he trained the UAE.
Fuchs told the Swiss Pferdewoche that Alexander Onischenko contacted him in winter when he was at events in the Middle East. Fuchs said that he found a solution so that he’s still engaged with the UAE. However, the winner of the silver medal at the 2000 Olympics will now focus on Onischenko and his Ukrainian team. For the time being he has a one-year contract, he will focus on preparing the team for Rio.
