La Table des Cavaliers: Meet Jean-Michel Saive

Come and join us for lunch at La Table des Cavaliers. You will learn from his experience as an Olympic athlete and as President of the Belgian Olympic Committe.
 

La Table des Cavaliers was born in 2017 from a desire to bring together equestrian enthusiasts and personalities from the equestrian world. Each edition honours a champion, sometimes a legend or a key player in the history of the sport. For example, La Table des Cavaliers has welcomed Olympic competitor Nelson Pessoa, Olympic champion Pierre Durand, and Félix-Marie Brasseur, dressage legend Anne d’Ieteren and Ingmar de Vos, President of the International Federation for Equestrian Sports.
The Table has only 20 seats and cultivates the ambition to offer everyone the possibility to participate in a conversation around the guest of the day. For this edition, hosted by TheMerode, we invite you to join the President of the Belgian Olympic Committee, Jean-Michel Saive.

Former Belgian Table Tennis Player, Jean-Michel Saive has competed at seven Olympic Games between 1988 and 2012 and has been the President of the Belgian Olympic Committee since 2021. La Table des Cavaliers has invited him to discuss the equestrian competition as well as the other Olympic ambitions of Team Belgium.

We look forward to welcoming you to La Table des Cavaliers as Team Belgium moves ever closer to Paris 2024.

Jean-Michel Saive

Né dans une famille de pongistes passionnés, il commence le tennis de table très jeune. À treize ans, il fait déjà partie des meilleurs joueurs belges et obtient sa première sélection dans l'équipe nationale. En 1985, il est le premier joueur classé en Belgique, place qu'il occupe toujours en 2015. En 1994, il atteint la première place mondiale qu'il gardera pendant 515 jours (du 9 février 1994 au 8 juin 1995 et du 26 mars 1996 au 24 avril 1996).
