Very rare 4th place for :BEL in the Modena Women’s Big Air, don’t remember them ever getting such a good result in a winter sport.*

Yet Bart Swings was third in the speed skating world championships (allround, the real world champs) in 2013 and had a 4th and 5th place there as well, plus he's got plenty of World Cup podiums and wins in the past 7 years or so :p

:BEL has one of the best freestyle snowboard programs in the world. Their men, lead by Sep Smeets (spelled that wrong), are very talented. The women’s results is surprisingly good, but it’s not unexpected.

Sebastien "Seppe" Smits and Bart Swings probably are somehow offended right now...:p

 

and on a minor scale, also Kevin Van Der Perren...
