Paralympic supremo re-elected to Belgian Olympic board
Anne d’Ieteren, President of the Belgian Paralympic Committee since 2009, has been re-elected as a member of the governing board of the Belgian Olympic and Interfederal Committee (BOIC), the Paralympic Movement’s website reports. D’Ieteren, a former dressage champion, has been representing equestrian sports since 1985 on the Board and has been the head of NPC Belgium since 2009. At the May 31 election, only seven-time Olympic table tennis legend Jean-Michel Saive received more votes than D’Ieteren. Meanwhile, Philippe Rogge, the son of IOC president Jacques Rogge, was elected vice president of the BOIC. Current BOIC president Pierre-Olivier Beckers was unanimously re-elected for another four-year term.
