President of Olympic Games Jumping Resigns

Mr. Rogier Van Iersel from The Netherlands has resigned from his position as President of the Ground Jury for Jumping for the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong. The decision of Mr. Van Iersel, who is an Official Judge of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI), is based on the fact that he is also team manager of the Saudi Arabian Jumping team, which may have resulted in a potential conflict of interest should the two functions be performed concurrently.

The FEI wishes to thank Mr. Van Iersel for his fair play decision which is entirely in line with its Code of Ethics and Conflict of Interest Policy and its constant efforts to ensure honest, transparent and fair sport.

The FEI will announce the selection of a new President of the Ground Jury for Jumping for the 2008 Olympic Games in due course.
