After having worked as coach of the Belgian show jumpers for two years, former show jumper Dirk Demeersman will not be offered another contract. In 2014 Demeersman signed a contract until May 2016. Now, after the Olympic Games, the joint decision was made not to continue the appointment in 2017. The 52-year-old will coach the show jumpers until a successor has been found. The federation wants to announce the new coach at the end of the year.
