Jorinde Verwimp: “It really hurts having to say that i’ve decided not to go to Tryon.¬†Timmie was not himself during the Belgian championships, after we found out he had hurt his back, the past few weeks we did everything possible to help him get better and he was getting better again.

I competed him yesterday at a national show and felt that he was stil not like he used to be. I don’t want to push him to do anything he is not ready to do. The time is to short to bring him back to his top level. He always gave his best to me at every show we did and now I feel he needs some rest for his body and mind.

This is not the way I hoped his last year to be like but Timmie’s health is the most important thing for me and he can have all the time he needs now.”
