Difficult internal conditions
The jump committee rejected that Bråthen was not wanted more.

“In recent weeks, the process has become difficult for reasons that all involved must take their share of responsibility for. This relates to internal issues such as the form of cooperation between the various actors that the jump management must deal with.
Bråthen has been making a fantastic effort to jump the Norwegian offers for a number of years, and the support he is now receiving from staff and athletes is not surprising,” continues Haug.
It’s not about equality
Furthermore, the head of the vaulting committee noted that the position of CEO of Norwegian Showjumping is about more than just sport.

I have waited the longest for the Jump Committee to make a public statement on an issue involving both individuals and the organization via the Ski Association, as we have had and continue to have the desire and hope to resolve the issue in a professional and good manner through internal dialogue,” President Hogg notes.
