Jur Vrieling gave away his Olympic silver medal yesterday. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.During yesterday’s VDL stallion show in Bears, Holland, Jur Vrieling gave away his Olympic silver medal to the van de Lageweg-family. The family runs the VDL Stud, and Wiepke van de Lageweg is both the breeder and owner of Vrieling’s Olympic partner VDL Bubalu – and Jur’s gesture was thus an emotional moment for all involved. The sympathetic Dutch rider seized the opportunity to express his gratefulness with beautiful words as well as handing over the Olympic medal. “It’s very nice that Jur gave us the medal, it means a lot to us,” Wiepke van de Lageweg said to afterwards.
