An exceptionally high achiever in his chosen field, Jan won numerous individual and team championship titles and the distinction of an Olympic Team Gold medal in Barcelona in 1992. Shortly after winning Olympic Gold, Jan launched CSI Valkenswaard and turned it into one of the best horse shows on the international equestrian scene.
